/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Turkish warplanes again bombed
suspected Kurdish rebel bases deep inside northern
Iraq.

Turkey blames the PPK rebels for penetrating in its
territory and attacking troops, RBK reports.

Turkish aircraft have struck northern Iraq three times
during the past 10 days in a campaign that began with
a larger bombing raid on December 16.

Tensions have escalated in recent months after Turkish
soldiers were killed by PKK fighters in a series of
attacks.

The Turkish military says it killed between 150 and
175 PKK members in its air attack on December 16.
