At least 20 PKK terrorists were killed in airstrikes carried out by Turkish jets in southeastern Hakkari province.
Airstrikes hit PKK targets in Yüksekova district, Hakkari province, and in the Lice district of Diyarbakir province on Saturday, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
Turkish jets also bombed PKK bases in the Avasin, Qandil and Gara areas of northern Iraq. The source did not give specifics of the targets destroyed.
