Turkish F-16s and F-4 had attacked positions of Kurdish rebel targets in Hakkari province near the Iraqi border, Turkish media reported. This is the first major airstrike against the members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party since March 2013, when the rebel targts declared a ceasefire, BBC reports.
Hürriyet Daily reports on “great losses” as a result of air strikes. Turkish media also informed that there were varying accounts of the strikes on Monday in the central and Eastern part of the country between the rebel targets of Kurdistan Workers’ Party and the army. According to the Turkish military, the current strikes are a response to the constant attacks to outpost in Hakkari by the rebel targets.
Kurds are angered for Turkey refused to support defending Kobani from the “Islamic State”.
