ANKARA, July 27 (RIA Novosti) - Turkish bomber planes carried out strikes on Saturday night on Mount Qandil in northern Iraq, targeting bases of Kurdish separatists, the Turkish military announced on its website on Sunday.

"The planes bombed 12 targets of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK). All the targets were destroyed," the statement said.

According to the statement, all the planes returned to their bases safely.

The PKK, considered a terrorist organization by the EU, the U.S., and many other countries, has been fighting for an autonomous ethnic Kurd state in southeast Turkey for nearly 25 years. The conflict has so far claimed over 40,000 lives.
