Turkish security units operating in northern Iraq seized explosive devices and other materials used by the PKK terrorists, the Turkish Defense Ministry said.


On Aug. 23, Turkey launched Operation Claw-3 in northern Iraq to battle the PKK terror group. To date, the ongoing offensive has neutralized dozens of terrorists.

The operation is supported by the country's air force, armed drones and self-propelled howitzers.

Terrorists often use northern Iraq as a base to plan cross-border terror attacks in Turkey.
