ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Thirty Turkish fighter jets launched a wave of air raids against Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) bases in the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan, Turkish authorities were quoted as saying Friday.  

The Hurriyet Daily News has reported an intelligence source saying that 30 F-16s shelled 130 targets in the Qandil Mountains both inside the Turkey and in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.  

The source also claimed that Turkish airstrikes have killed 190 PKK guerrillas and injured at least 300 others.      

The latest conflict has possibly brought to a halt a peace agreement reached between Ankara and the PKK two years ago.

Tensions in Turkey escalated after the PKK claimed responsibility for assassinating two policemen in Gaziantep last Wednesday, ending the shaky peace process with Ankara that began in 2013.

In the last week, Turkish air force jets and artillery have kept up a hail of attacks against the PKK, including a fourth round of airstrikes on Tuesday on PKK camps in the Qandil Mountains of Iraq’s Kurdistan region.
 
The airstrikes coincide with nationwide raids inside Turkey serious confrontations between Kurdish activists and the Turkish police.

Political parties should not murder people! | 31/7/2015
Hope the murdering of those two policemen was worth it.

Turkish pussies ran away after they got ambushed by Pkk, they are scared to fight on ground so they use the Isis puppets.

They can bomb all the mountains, burn all the forest & plateaus with their wild animals same as the Cudi mountain which is Kurdish hearth, and they can kill all the Kurdish mules, by doing that they are showing to the world their known barbarism. But those fascist Mongolians & their corrupt Muslim president aren't going to kill spirit of the Kurds, Because we the Kurds believe "we have kinship with all the human being as well as rational animal and nature because of the soul which unite us" Those Turkish fanatics and lover of the ISIL as well as al Qaeda are going to pay for their crimes soon or later, because that is the law of the almighty which can't be reversad.
