Turkish campaign against PKK continues

Turkish forces continue to attack Iraqi Kurdistan in hopes of eliminating PKK rebels, BBC News reported on Saturday.

Air strikes initiated by the Turkish military began on March 28, and were aimed at PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) bases in northern Iraq.
Iraqi authorities, as well as U.S. forces have urged the Turkish military to end the attacks for fear that Iraqi Kurds will be pulled into the fighting.

The article adds, “The PKK, which wants autonomy for Kurds in south-eastern Turkey, is branded a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and EU.”
