Turkish tanks move on N.Iraq, near PKK camp -sources

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish tanks and armored vehicles crossed into northern Iraq headed in the direction of a Kurdish militant camp, Turkish security sources said Monday.

The incursion came as cross-border operations continued in the wake of last week’s attack by Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters that killed 24 Turkish soldiers.

The armored column was headed in the direction of a militant camp at Haftanin, around 20 km (12 miles) from the Habur border post, and near the Iraqi city of Zakho, the sources said.
