The general staff said on Sunday that Turkish military planes had carried out airstrikes in the Avasin-Basyan region that targeted terrorists plotting attacks on Turkish bases, according to the Anadolu news agency.
Turkish forces have been involved in raids across the country and in northern Iraq against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), listed as a terrorist organisation by Ankara.
The group has been demanding the creation of a Kurdish autonomy in the region since the early 1980s, which has led to an ongoing conflict with Ankara. In 2013, a ceasefire agreement was reached between the two sides. That truce collapsed two years later, after a series of attacks allegedly committed by the PKK militants.
