ANKARA, Turkey — Turkish jets hit Kurdish rebel positions in northern Iraq on Monday, according to private Turkish  television stations NTV and CNN-Turk.

Military authorities were not immediately available for comment.

Kurdish rebels from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) have recently intensified their attacks on Turkish targets, and Kurdish rebel chief Abdullah Ocalan said last week he had abandoned efforts to seek dialogue with Turkey.
