(MENAFN) Turkish jets hit a target in northern Iraq and killed 13 alleged Kurdish Pkk fighters. As the statement said "In an air strike in northern Iraq, 13 armed members of a separatist terrorist organisation preparing for an attack were neutralized," .
As the PKK has been making a rebellion in Turkey's Kurdish southeast but has bases across the border in northern Iraq that Turkey usually aims at.
Turkish troops are having a joint military implement with Iraqi soldiers close by their border, which has irritated Ankara and Baghdad.
Turkish fear of the referendum that was so accepted is that it could increase the support for separation in the southeastern area that will threaten economic and military procedures.
