Turkey presses ahead with PKK raids amid calls for restraint

ANKARA, Turkey -- Turkey is pressing ahead with airstrikes against Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq amid international calls for restraint. The state-run Anadolu Agency said as many as 28 F-16 jets raided 65 Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, targets in northern Iraq, including shelters and ammunition depots on Friday. A day earlier, as many as 80 jets hit more than 100 targets, the agency said. Anadolu claimed some 260 PKK rebels were killed and 400 were wounded since the start of the raids. The PKK has not reported rebel casualties. Turkey's allies have urged it to resume a Kurdish peace process. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told the daily Bild the Turkish government "should not tear down the bridges to the Kurds that have been arduously built in the last few years."
