Turkish bomber planes carried out strikes on Saturday night in northern
Turkish bomber planes carried out strikes on Saturday night in northern Iraq, targeting bases of Kurdish separatists, the Turkish military announced on its website on Sunday.

"The aerial operation was conducted on Saturday evening at 22:30 local time (19:30 GMT) in the Zap region. The targets were successfully destroyed," the statement said.

The military gave no further details on the bombing raid.

In February, the Turkish army held a large-scale cross border operation in northern Iraq, killing, according to official data, 240 militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

The PKK, considered a terrorist organization by the EU, the U.S., and many other countries, has been fighting for an autonomous ethnic Kurd state in southeast Turkey for nearly 25 years. The conflict has so far claimed over 40,000 lives.
