Turkish jets struck more than 50 Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq where members of the separatist outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) are holed up, military sources said Wednesday.

"Sixteen F-16 fighter jets took off from their base in Diyarbakir in the southeast at around 2000 GMT Tuesday and bombed the (rebel) targets in Qandil mountain in northern Iraq, 90 kilometres from the border," military sources said. "More than 50 targets were hit in the three-hour operation."
