The Turkish military said on Tuesday 34 militants from the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were killed in its latest air strikes on the group’s camps in northern Iraq’s Qandil mountain region.

Turkey has been bombing PKK targets in northern Iraq and in mostly Kurdish southeastern Turkey since July 24, in response to what it says are increased attacks by the Kurdish militants on members of the security forces.

Recognized as a terrorist group by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, the PKK waged an armed separatist war against Turkey for over 30 years resulting in more than 40,000 casualties, but maintained a rocky ceasefire with Ankara since 2013 until last month.
