As part of Operation Claw-Tiger, the Turkish Armed Forces have destroyed more than 500 PKK targets in northern Iraq's Haftanin region, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

 

According to the security sources on Thursday, in the first 36 hours of the operation, Turkish forces hit over 500 targets of the PKK terror group in the region with F-16 jets, howitzers and multiple rockets.

 

Following the strikes, Turkish commandos also conducted an infiltration operation through land and air to target terrorist hideouts.

 

Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar addressed the commanders of the troops via video link, saying: “Operation Claw-Tiger is going very well.”

 

“We will continue with the same seriousness and determination and hopefully we will successfully end this operation,” Akar said.
