Turkey says hit Kurd rebel targets in N.Iraq last week
ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's armed forces command said on Monday it had carried out air strikes on three Kurdish militant targets in northern Iraq between June 26-30.
In a statement, it said the strikes were carried out in the Qandil and Zab areas and targeted shelters belonging to the "separatist terror organisation", a term used to describe the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) which is fighting for greater Kurdish autonomy in Turkey. It gave no further details.
