ISTANBUL - Turkey will drain the "terror swamp" in northern Iraq's Qandil region, just as it cleansed Syria's Afrin and other regions of Kurdish fighters, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday.

Turkey will continue to carry out operations on Kurdish militants camps in the Qandil mountains, Erdogan said at a rally, after the Turkish army said over the weekend it hit 14 targets belonging to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in the region.
