Turkish army: 90-100 Kurd rebels killed in north Iraq raids

ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkish military operations launched in northern Iraq last week have killed 90-100 Kurdish guerrillas, with 132 targets struck in six days of air raids, the General Staff said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the armed forces said it also had information that more than 80 Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants had been wounded in the operations, which it said would continue.
