Turkish jets shell suspected PKK positions in Kurdistan Region
Turkish warplanes conducted air raids in the Kurdistan Region on Monday, February 20, targeting suspected positions of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Turkish warplanes struck the village of Sgereyan four times and are still in the sky above the district’s villages, NRT reported.

It is too early to know what damage has occurred and whether there have been any casualties.

Turkey resumed the shelling of suspected PKK positions inside the Kurdistan Region in July 2015 after a two-year ceasefire between the Turkish military and the PKK came to an end.

The three-decade long conflict between Turkey and the PKK – which demands the creation of an independent Kurdish state –  has claimed more than 40,000 lives.
