Tyrkiske fly har bombet PKK-geriljaen sørøst i landet. Det er et brudd på våpenhvilen og kommer på et meget sensitivt tidspunkt da kurdere både innenfor og utenfor Tyrkia er opprørt over Tyrkias manglende støtte til forsvaret av Kobani.

Turkey has launched airstrikes on Kurdish rebel targets on the Iraqi border. The Kurdistan Workers’ Party said the attacks were in breach of a ceasefire agreement.

Security sources said on Tuesday Turkish fighter jets had bombed Kurdish rebel targets in the southeast of the country.

The airstrikes were the first against Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) targets since a March 2013 ceasefire.

The AFP news agency reported fighter jets struck positions of the outlawed PKK late Monday in the village of Daglica, near the border with Iraq.

Turkish media also said the military used F-16 and F-4 jets to launch airstrikes after alleged PKK militants attacked a police station in Daglica.

In a separate incident, also on Monday, Turkish military helicopters struck suspected PKK targets around the village of Geyiksuyu in eastern Turkey following raids by the rebels.

The military did not confirm the airstrikes, but said in a statement that «terrorists» had launched attacks against security forces in two locations in the south east, including in Hakkari province.

«The occupying Turkish army carried out air strikes against our forces for the first time yesterday (Monday) in almost two years,» the armed wing of the PKK said on its website.
