Ten Turkish F-16s took off from the Diyarbakır 2nd Air Force Command and bombarded Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) camps in Iraq's Zap and Khakurk regions on Tuesday.

The offensive began on Tuesday afternoon and lasted late into the night. The F-16s targeted camps where PKK leaders Murat Karayılan, Cemil Bayık and Duran Kalkan are thought to be staying.

The PKK, which is fighting for autonomy in Turkey's mainly Kurdish Southeast, was founded on Marxist ideology.

The cycle of violence between the Turkish military and the PKK has blighted Turkey's southeast for 27 years with human rights abuses and atrocities committed on both sides, and civilians inevitably caught in the middle.
