Counterterrorism operation took place in Zap area of northern Iraq on Sunday

Turkish jets killed four PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, an official statement said on Monday.

The air force launched a counter-terrorism operation in the Zap area on Sunday, according to the Turkish General Staff.

Air strikes killed the terrorists, who were planning to assault military bases on the Iraq-Turkey border.

Elsewhere, the security forces disposed of two improvised explosives in the Silopi district of southern Turkey’s Sirnak province and two hand grenades in the Beytussebap district.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015. Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
