The statement said that in the Zap area of northern Iraq on Sunday, Turkish fighter jets conducted an airstrike on PKK terrorists preparing for attacks on bases in Turkey.

Four PKK terrorists were killed in the airstrike, the statement added.

Additionally, in southeastern Turkey, two PKK terrorists were killed in Hakkari on Sunday, and one was killed in Diyarbakir’s Lice district on Monday, according to the statement.
