Turkish jets attack Kurdish rebel targets in Iraq

Turkey's military says its war planes have attacked Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq for a second successive day. The military says the jets on Wednesday bombed Iraq's Qandil mountains, where Turkey says the Kurdish rebel leadership is in hiding and where the rebels are said to train. The military also attacked the area a day earlier. It did not say whether the attack resulted in casualties. The Kurdistan Workers' Party has been fighting for self-rule in Turkey's southeast since 1984. The conflict has killed tens of thousands of people since then. Turkey has launched several air force attacks and one major ground operation this year against rebel bases in northern Iraq.
