Turkish warplanes attack PKK rebels in Iraq

ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish warplanes attacked Kurdish rebel positions across the border in the mountains of northern Iraq early on Sunday, the military General Staff said in a statement.

Turkey’s armed forces have conducted several cross-border military operations in recent weeks against rebels of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), who use northern Iraq as a base from which to attack security forces inside Turkey.
