Turkish warplanes hit PKK targets in northern Iraq: officials
Dozens of Turkish warplanes struck militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) targets in northern Iraq overnight, killing tens of the group's fighters, a security source told Reuters on Tuesday. Two government officials said more than 40 jets took part in the strikes, which came after the PKK killed 16 Turkish soldiers in southeast Turkey on Sunday in their deadliest attack since the collapse of a two-year-old ceasefire in July. The clashes, weeks before polls the ruling AK Party hopes will restore its majority, has left in tatters a peace process which President Tayyip Erdogan launched in 2012 in an attempt to end a three-decade insurgency that has killed more than 40,000.
