Turkish warplanes bombed the camps of the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) in northern Iraq on Monday, local NTV reported.

The report said that Turkish warplanes hit the PKK positions and camps early Monday morning, but no more details were available.

A statement issued by the Turkish army on its website said on Sunday that the Turkish security forces killed 10 PKK militants in clashes in eastern Turkey on Sunday.

A several-day military operation near Ortacanak village in the predominantly Kurdish province of Bingol left 10 PKK rebels dead, according to the statement.

The Turkish military has recently launched several cross-border attacks to fight against PKK separatists, who use the Kurdish autonomous region in northern Iraq as a launch pad for attacks against Turkey.

The PKK, listed by the United States and Turkey as a terrorist group, took up arms against Turkey in 1984 with the aim of creating an ethnic homeland in the southeast. More than 30,000 people have been killed in the over-two-decade conflict.
