Turkish airstrikes hit PKK terrorists in Iraq

Turkish security forces killed nine PKK terrorists in northern Iraq during a cross-border counterterrorism operation in the region, unintentionally killing two Iraqi military officers and raising tensions between the two countries.

Seven of the terrorists were killed in air-backed operations in the Haftanin, Avasin and Metina regions after being detected by reconnaissance and surveillance activities, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Twitter.

The ministry said Turkey's operations will continue until the last terrorist is killed and shared footage of the operation, Daily Sabah reported.

Separately, Turkey killed two other PKK terrorists in the Zap region in an air-backed operation, the ministry said on Twitter.
