ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish fighter jets launched attacks on camps of the militant Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in northern Iraq overnight, the prime minister’s office said in a statement on Saturday, confirming earlier media reports.

Turkey simultaneously launched ground attacks against the PKK and Islamic State in northern Syria, it said.
