Turkish jets struck Kurdish militant targets in the southeastern province of Hakkari late on Wednesday, hitting shelters and armed posts, the army said in a statement on Thursday.

Turkish security forces have regularly targeted camps belonging to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), deemed a terrorist organization by Ankara, the United States and the European Union, since the collapse of a ceasefire in July.
