Turkish war jets bombs PKK targets in Iraq

Turkish warplanes attack PKK targets in northern Iraq on Wednesday, military sources said, hours after a rebel attack in southeast Turkey killed a dozen soldiers.

The air raids came hours after reports of an attack by Kurdish guerrillas on a military convoy in southeastern Turkey.

Eleven soldiers were killed in the ambush in Hakkari province’s Cukurca district near the Iraqi border. More than 30 Turkish soldiers have died in intensified rebel attacks since July
