Turkish army continues air strikes in Iraq's Kandil
The Turkish Air Force targeted the shelters, hideouts, and weapons pits of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in northern Iraq's Mt. Kandil region on June 15, the military said on June 16.
In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said the targets in the mountainous area were destroyed as a result of the operation.
Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq, where the group has its main base in the Mt. Kandil region, near the Iranian border, have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the PKK resumed its armed campaign.
The PKK was listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.
