Turkish jets have destroyed shelters and weapon emplacements of the PKK terrorist group in northern Iraq, the military announced on Thursday.

In a written statement, Turkish General Staff said that the airstrikes targeted the PKK camps located in Zap region on Wednesday.

Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq -- where the terrorist group has its main base in Mt. Qandil running along the Iranian border -- and southeastern Turkey have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when it resumed its armed campaign.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU and U.S. -- has killed more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
