Turkey strikes PKK bases in northern Iraq

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish warplanes on Monday struck Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) bases in northern Iraq a day after a deadly bomb attack in the capital killed 36 people, the army said.

The fighter jets hit arms depots and shelters of the outlawed PKK in the mountainous Kandil and Gara regions in northern Iraq, the army said.

The targets were hit "with precision", it added.

No one has claimed Sunday's bomb attack in Ankara which hit a busy transport hub in the heart of the city of five million people.

Turkey has in recent months waged an all-out assault on the terrorist PKK.

After the collapse of a fragile truce, deadly clashes resumed last year between security forces and the terrorists in the country's southeast.
