Turkish Air Force conducted an operation in northern Iraq, killing at least eight PKK terrorists, a statement said Tuesday.

Axar.az reports citing AA.

According to the statement issued by Turkish General Staff, the air force launched counter-terrorism operation Monday after detecting presence of the terrorists in Zap area.

It said that the terrorists were plotting an assault at the military base on Turkey-Iraq border.

Elsewhere, one PKK terrorist was killed in Turkey’s southeastern Sirnak province Monday in another counter-terrorism operation, the statement added.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015. Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
