Turkish jets bomb Kurdish rebel hideouts in northern Iraq

Published: 01.15.08, 15:06 / Israel News

Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish rebel hideouts in northern Iraq on Tuesday, the military announced. It was the fourth aerial attack on rebel positions in northern Iraq since the military launched a bombing campaign Dec. 16.


In Tuesday's attack, the jets "effectively struck" at Kurdish rebel targets in the areas of Zap-Sivi, Avasin-Basyan and Hakurk regions, the military said on its website. Private NTV television, citing Iraqi Kurdish officials, said about 10 jets participated in the raids. The military said the air assault targeted only confirmed rebel positions and that efforts were made to avoid harming the civilian population. (AP)
