Thirty Turkish war planes on Thursday carried out a new wave of bombings against targets of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq, the NTV and CNN-Turk channels reported.

The F-16 planes struck five locations in northern Iraq, hitting shelters, storage points, caves, and depots of the PKK in retaliation for a deadly attack that killed three Turkish troops earlier.
