According to the statement issued by the Turkish General Staff, nine F-16 fighter jets hit hideouts and underground ammunition depots belonging to the PKK in the mountainous areas of Metina and Qandil as well as in the towns of Sina and Haftanin in northern Iraq.
The Turkish army also said, it conducted both airstrikes and military operations against shelters, caves and weapon pits used by the PKK in the southeast and northeast provinces of Hakkari and Kars, respectively on Saturday and Sunday.
Formed in 1978, the PKK terrorist group has been fighting the Turkish government for an independent state until the early 2000's. The group then shifted its goal to autonomy in predominately Kurdish inhabited regions of Turkey.
