About 20 fighter jets took part in the operation that targeted positions of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Zap-Khakurk region of the Kurdish-held autonomous north of Iraq, the NTV news channel reported.

Nearly 50 targets were hit in day-long missions carried out mainly on intelligence passed on by the United States, it said.

The Anatolia news agency reported that the strikes were ordered after a group of PKK rebels were detected on their way towards the Turkish border from their mountainous hideouts in northern Iraq.
