    Turkish warplanes launched a successful air operation on PKK positions in northern Iraq and hit a group of PKK terrorists and their leaders, the army said late on Sunday. (UPDATED)

    The army said the targeted terrorists were hit in the Zap region, a stronghold of the terror organization.     


    Sunday's operation is the latest in a series of raids after the bloody attack on a border outpost which killed 17 soldiers and injured 20 others.


    The Turkish Armed Forces continued operations in pursuit of PKK/KONGRA-GEL terrorists, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement, adding the planes have all returned to their bases safely.


    Only PKK positions were targeted and all the necessary measures were taken to avoid any civilian casualties, the statement added.


    Turkey launched Monday another operation against the PKK terrorists bombing the border areas of Nerwa, Rekan, Nahili and Barwary Bala in northern Iraq, PUKmedia, a news service associated with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, reported.
