Turkey jets attack Kurds

Ankara, Dec. 26 (Reuters): Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish guerrilla targets in northern Iraq today, Turkey’s general staff said, in the fourth such cross-border raid in five days.

The Turkish military said its offensive against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party inside Turkey and across the border in northern Iraq would continue.

“Fighter jets belonging to the Turkish armed forces successfully hit targets belonging to the terrorist organisation in the early hours of December 26,” the general staff said.

Jabbar Yawar, spokesman for the Peshmerga security forces of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdish region, said the strike lasted about an hour.
