After the Istanbul bombing last week, Turkey attacked Kurdish militants.

On Sunday, Turkey bombed Kurdish fighters in northern Syria and Iraq shortly after a blast in Istanbul killed six people.

Defence Minister Hulusi Akar said in a statement that in the attacks, military bases of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, and the Syrian People’s Protection Units, or YPG, were targeted.

Great success was achieved in destroying terrorist shelters, bunkers, caves, tunnels, and warehouses, as well as terrorist headquarters, Akar said.聽
