Turkish jets strike multiple targets in northern Iraq


10:44, January 15, 2013

ANKARA, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- The Turkish Armed Forces launched a cross-border air operation earlier Monday in northern Iraq after an infiltration attempt by a large group of outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) members from Zap camp across the Turkish border, private Dogan news agency reported.

After the information was received, the 2nd Air Forces Command sent two observation planes to the region.

Six F-16 jets took off from the 8th Main Jet Base in Diyarbakir province in southeastern Turkey, passed over the southeastern province of Hakkari, and bombarded 18 different targets in the Zap, Haftanin and Metina regions in northern Iraq.

This is the first cross-border operation by the Turkish Armed Forces in 12 days, according to officials.

The Zap area, a mountainous snow-bound region near the Turkish border in northern Iraq, hosts a major PKK base and training camp.
