Turkey launches air strike against PKK in Iraq after coup

The Turkish armed forces have carried out their first air strikes against Kurdish militants in northern Iraq since last week’s coup attempt, killing 20 fighters.
F-16 fighter jets late Tuesday hit targets of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in the Hakurk region of northern Iraq.
The major significant aspect is that about 6000 military men were detained by the Turkish Government for coup.The prime minister said, with military jets flying over the capital and reports of vehicles blocking two  major bridges in Istanbul.

Former Turkish air force chief General Akin Ozturk, 25 other ex-generals and many soldiers have been arrested, suspected of
planning last Friday’s coup.
