Turkish fighter jets have hit 12 PKK targets in northern Iraq on Tuesday, according to security sources.

The Turkish Armed Forces hit four targets in the Metina region of northern Iraq and in Cukurca, a district of Turkey’s southeastern Hakkari province, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Turkish warplanes also carried out airstrikes on eight PKK targets in Iraq’s Hakurk region.

The PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU – resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.
