Following a White House meeting in Washington, DC on November 5 between Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President George W. Bush, the first major Turkish operation aimed at striking PKK terror forces in northern Iraq took place two nights ago.

Turkish air forces jets struck at PKK bases in northern Iraq near the Turkish border, destroying an abandoned police station believed to be sheltering PKK terrorists. Turkish air force Skorsky helicopters leaving from Sirnak and Turkish F-16s leaving from Diyarbakir struck repeatedly in the region at targets where the PKK is being sheltered, including bases in the Sinnaht and Haftanin regions.
