ISTANBUL - The Turkish military said on Friday that air and ground operations against Kurdish militants, following an attack earlier this week that killed 24 soldiers, were concentrated on the Turkish side of the border with Iraq.

"The large part of air and ground operations are carried out in the country, focusing mainly on the Cukurca area, and air and ground operations continue in a few areas of northern Iraq," the military said in a statement posted on its website.

A Reuters reporter in Cukurca, one of the districts in the southeast province of Hakkari where the militant attacks by fighters from the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) took place, said on Friday he could see little military activity in the area, apart from warplanes flying at high altitude overhead.
