The Turkish military destroyed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorist shelters, hideouts, armories, and ammunition depots in an air operation conducted on Friday in Iraq’s Qandil region.


Airstrikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq have been carried out regularly since July 2015, when the PKK resumed its decades-long armed campaign.

Northern Iraq’s Qandil Mountains have been a haven for PKK terrorists over the past few decades. Considered as the main base of the PKK, which control checkpoints and entrances to the mountains, the structuring in the area is used for cover and concealment by terrorists.

In a separate operation, the military neutralized three armed terrorists and seized ammunition in Turkey’s Kemah region in the eastern province of Erzincan.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and the EU.

In its terror campaign against Turkey, which has lasted for more than three decades, over 40,000 people have been killed, including women and children.
