DIYARBAKIR, Turkey - At least 12 warplanes took off from an air base in southeastern Turkey on Thursday around 1830 GMT, a Reuters witness said, but it was not immediately clear where they were headed.

The Turkish military were not immediately available for comment on the warplanes' destination. Turkey launched a heavy air and artillery assault on Kurdish guerrilla targets in northern Iraq overnight on Wednesday.
