Turkish Military airstrikes kill 80 terrorists inside Iraq
ANKARA: The Turkish armed forces on Wednesday claimed to have killed over 80 "terrorists" after air strikes on Kurdish militant positions in northern Iraq.
The military said there were also "several" injured members of the "separatist terrorist organisation" - Turkey's official term for the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) - after the strikes in the Asos region on Monday.
It was not possible to independently verify the toll.
The strikes also damaged a PKK shelter, tunnel and hideout, the armed forces said, adding it destroyed a large ammunition store and two armoured vehicles.
Last month four Turkish soldiers were killed in northern Iraq in two separate attacks blamed on the PKK.
