The Turkish General Staff said in a statement, "The airstrikes were carried out on Thursday in the Hakurk and Avasin-Basyan regions of northern Iraq."
"Four shelters, hideouts, and weapons pits used by the terror organization (PKK) were destroyed during the airstrikes", the statement added.
The Turkish military continued that the PKK forces were preparing for an attack on a Turkish convoy and their bases in the region, the Anadolu news agency reported.
The Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralised" in their statements to say that a terrorist has either been killed or captured.
It has been listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union.
The PKK is responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
Turkey has been embroiled in a state of emergency since last year, ever since the failed military coup against Erdogan and subsequent terrorist attacks by local militants and the IS group in the country. (ANI)
