Turkish warplanes have struck PKK targets in northern Iraq, ignoring protests from Baghdad which says Turkey’s repeated airstrikes violate Iraqi sovereignty and endanger civilians.

The air raid on Saturday came a day after Baghdad summoned Turkey’s ambassador over an airstrike which killed eight people in northern Iraq.

Turkey said the operations “will continue as long as terror organizations nest on Iraqi soil and as long as Turkey’s security needs require it to.”

“We will bury them in the holes they dug,” he added.
