ARBIL, Iraq - The Turkish military carried out an air-strike on Sunday on northern Iraqi Kurdistan in the latest operation against Kurdish PKK rebels sheltering in the remote area, a PKK spokesman said.

At least one Turkish warplane hit an area in Iraq's Qandil mountains late on Sunday morning, but there was no confirmation of casualties, PKK spokesman Dozdar Hamo told Reuters.

Turkish authorities did not immediately confirm the operation.

Turkey's military has launched air strikes and limited ground missions into northern Iraq since August this year after a surge in separatist attacks by the PKK, or Kurdistan Workers Party, following the breakdown of an earlier ceasefire.
