Turkey bombs 28 targets in Iraqi Kurdistan

Turkey has bombed 28 targets in Iraqi Kurdistan.
Turkish jets bombed 28 targets on a second day of attacks on bases in northern Iraq used by the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), the military said Friday.

Following bombing raids on 60 targets Wednesday the air force launched an "effective" operation Thursday against 28 targets in the Qandil, Hakurk, Avasin-Basyan and Zap regions of northern Iraq, the military said in a statement on its website.

In coordination with the air strikes, 96 more targets in the region were kept under intense artillery fire, the statement said.

"The targets were positively identified as belonging to the PKK, and the necessary sensitivity is paid to protect civilians," it said.

"The actions under the struggle against terror will go on with determination inside and outside the country based on the requirements of military needs," it added.

The military launched a first wave of bomb attacks on Wednesday against rebel targets in Iraq in response to a deadly attack by the rebel group against a military unit in Cukurca town in southeast Turkey, killing nine security officials.
The world gets all excited when Israel goes after the terrorists in Gaza who are shooting rockets at Israeli civilians. But the world is silent when Turkey invades another country, because... it's Turkey and the Obama administration (which still controls Iraq) lets them do whatever they want.

Double standards anyone?

Perhaps Israel should recognise the Kurdish struggle and ask Erdogan to apologize?

I thought Turkey was angry with Syria and was going to fight them? How did Kurdistan get into this?
