Turkish air forces pounded PKK terror organization camps in northern Iraq on Thursday, the military has said on Friday.
The warplanes attacked terror group's shelters, bunkers and weapons dumps in the Qandil Mountains, a statement released by Turkish General Staff said.
Speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, military sources said that Turkish warplanes carried out airstrikes against the PKK targets between 9.00 p.m. and 9.45 p.m. local time on Thursday.
Turkish F-16 and F-4 2020 warplanes safely returned to base after hitting exact positions, the military added.
Turkish security officers have killed more than 4500 PKK terrorists since the launch of anti-terror operations on July 22, 2015, military sources said on May 11.
The number of killed terrorists include those killed in Turkey and also during the operations launched against the group in its northern Iraq camps.
The sources added that 695 were captured wounded, in addition to 716 others captured and 641 who surrendered to the security forces.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU, resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July, since when more than 430 members of the security forces have also been killed.
Ankara has stated its determined stance against PKK terror organization, vowing to continue operations until all the terror threats are cleared off.
