Turkey strikes Kurdish militants in Iraq, Syria

Turkey has reported the destruction of 23 targets following its overnight air strikes on Kurdish militants in northern Iraq and Syria.

The air strikes come after nine Turkish soldiers were killed in clashes with Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants in northern Iraq on Friday.

The new strikes were on targets in northern Syria and the Metina, Gara, Hakurk and Qandil regions of northern Iraq, the Turkish defence ministry said late on Monday.

“Twenty-three targets were destroyed, including caves, shelters, tunnels, ammunition warehouses, supply materials and facilities used by the terrorist organisation,” it said in a statement.
