ANKARA, Turkey – Turkey says its jet struck Islamic State group targets across the border in Syria for the second straight night. The fighter jets also hit camps belonging to Kurdish militants in northern Iraq.
It was the first time Turkish jets have struck Kurds in northern Iraq since a peace deal was announced in 2013 between Ankara and the rebel group, the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK. The group has been fighting Turkey for autonomy since 1984.
A government statement said Saturday that the jets hit PKK shelters, bunkers, storages facilities and other "logistic points." Areas targeted included the Qandil mountains where the PKK's command is based.
It did not specify IS targets struck in Syria.
