ISTANBUL - The Turkish military said on Tuesday that it has carried out air strikes against Kurdish militant PKK targets near Iraq's Sinjar mountains and northeastern Syria to prevent the group from sending weapons and explosives for attacks inside Turkey.

PKK has frequently been using the two regions to channel militants, weapons and bombs and the materials have been used in attacks against Turkish military outposts and most recently in a bombing in southeastern city of Diyarbakir, the army said.

PKK is designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.
