Turkish warplanes have targeted 28 bases of the banned terrorist group Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in Iraq's mountainous northern region for a second day in a row.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces made the announcement on its website on Friday, Xinhua reported.

It further said that the attacks only targeted PKK and that necessary precautions were taken to avoid any harm to civilians.

Meanwhile, four PKK militants were killed in eastern and southeastern Turkey on Thursday.

Some 96 PKK targets have been attacked since the operation began on Wednesday.

The attacks come after the banned group attacked a military convoy in the Cukurca region in southeastern Turkey, killing 11 Turkish soldiers and one security guard as well as wounding 15 soldiers.

"Heinous attacks of the terrorist organization will be given the harshest response. The fight against terrorism will continue resolutely without giving any concessions from democracy and the rule of law," Turkey's Security Council said in a statement before launching the two-day operation.

The PKK, which is recognized as a terrorist group by much of the international community, has waged a terror campaign against Ankara since 1984, demanding a separate Kurdish state.

Earlier this year, a report issued by Turkey's National Security Council (MGK) revealed that the PKK has been forging new ties with the Israeli regime and that Kurdish terrorists are being trained by the Israeli spy agency, Mossad.
