Turkish Fighter Jets Bomb Kurdish Rebels, Kill 10

Wednesday, 18 May 2016 05:56 AM

ISTANBUL (AP) — Turkey's state-run news agency says Turkish fighter jets have killed 10 Kurdish rebels during bombing runs in the country's southeast.

Citing a military source, the Anadolu Agency said Wednesday that the Monday air raids targeted the mainly Kurdish province of Hakkari, which borders with Iraq.

The Turkish military is engaged in renewed conflict with rebels linked to the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK. Ankara and its Western allies consider the PKK a terrorist organization. A tenuous cease-fire between the two camps ended last summer.

Since then thousands of people have been killed, including 450 Turkish security forces, in violence that has devastated mainly Kurdish districts.

Turkish fighter jets periodically bomb Kurdish rebels in the southeast and in northern Iraq. Kurdish militants have claimed responsibility for multiple attacks in Turkey.
