Turkish military shells northern Iraq - guard

SULAIMANIYA, Iraq, Nov 10 (Reuters) - Turkish artillery shelled northern Iraq on Monday, Colonel Hussein Tamor, head of the border guards in Iraq's northern Kurdish province of Dahuk, told Reuters.

PKK Kurdish separatist fighters use northern Iraq's largely autonomous Kurdistan region as a base to launch attacks on targets in southeastern Turkey, and Turkish forces have frequently retaliated with air and artillery strikes.
