Turkish jets have carried out airstrikes on PKK terrorist bases in northern Iraq on Friday, the Turkish army said.

According to a statement issued by the Turkish General Staff, four F-16 fighter jets destroyed PKK targets, including shelters, caves and ammunition depots in the region of Zap early Friday morning. 

Eight F-4 2020 fighter jets also destroyed PKK targets such as ammunition depots and shelters in the region of Metina a few hours later, the army added.

More than 300 members of the security forces have been martyred since the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, resumed its 30-year armed campaign in July.

Thousands of PKK terrorists have also been killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
