Turkish jets destroyed 12 terrorist PKK targets in northern Iraq, the military said on Sunday.

The airstrikes were carried out in northern Iraq's Hakurk, Sinat-Haftanin, Zap and Metina regions, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement.

Among the targets were shelters and weapon emplacements of the terrorist organization, the statement added.

Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq, where the terror group has its main base in the Mt. Qandil region, near the Iranian border, have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the PKK resumed its armed terror campaign.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and the EU. In its terror campaign against Turkey, which has lasted for more than three decades, over 40,000 people have been killed, including women and children.
