19 Kurdish rebels were killed in air strikes in southeast Turkey, reported the Turkish military Saturday morning. A statement posted on the military Web site says the attacks were launched in response to a late Friday rebel attack on a military outpost in the border province of Hakkari, which killed two soldiers. Turkey has launched several aerial attacks and one major ground operation against rebel bases across the border with Iraq this year.
