DIYARBAKIR (Reuters) - Turkish warplanes hit militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) targets in southeastern Turkey and northern Iraq, security sources said on Saturday.

Twenty jets took off from Diyarbakir air base and bombed sites in southeastern Sirnak province and others used by militants in Hakurk, Avasin and Qandil in northern Iraq, they said.

The Turkish military has frequently carried out air strikes in the area in recent months.
