“According to initial estimates, this operation allowed us to neutralize more than 150 terrorists,” the army said in a statement on its website. A PKK spokesman said that only six rebels were killed and they were from a different faction.
Turkey has staged several cross-border raids into northern Iraq over the past few months in pursuit of the rebels. The strikes, which began on Thursday and ended on Friday, were carried out against PKK guerrillas based in the Qandil Mountains in northern Iraq, the Turkish army says.
All targeted posts in Qandil area were destroyed during the operation, according to the Turkish army’s statement. But a PKK spokesman, Ahmed Danees, told the Reuters news agency only six rebels died and they were from a faction fighting against Iran.
