"Turkish artillery shelled once more villages in Zakho on the border with Turkey, seeking out members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)," the sources said.

"No damage" was caused by the shelling, which lasted nearly an hour.

Turkish warplanes and artillery have bombed PKK positions over the past two days in the regions of Zap, Avasin-Basyan and Hakurk on the border with northern Iraq, the Turkish military said Saturday.
