(Reuters) - Turkey sent warplanes to attack Kurdish targets in northern Iraq on Wednesday, military sources said, hours after a rebel attack in southeast Turkey killed a dozen soldiers.
The planes took off from a base in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir and struck targets in the mountainous Kandil and Zap areas of Iraq where the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) operates a number of bases, the sources said.
They said the targets included anti-aircraft defenses and rebel shelters in the region.
The air raids came hours after reports of an attack by Kurdish guerrillas on a military convoy in southeastern Turkey.

Berlin, Friday, Sept. 1--An increasing number of border incidents involving shooting and mutual Polish-German casualties are reported by the German press and radio. The most serious is reported from Gleiwitz, a German city on the line where the southwestern portion of Poland meets the Reich.
At 8 P.M., according to the semi-official news agency, a group of Polish insurrectionists forced an entrance into the Gleiwitz radio station, overpowering the watchmen and beating and generally mishandling the attendants. The Gleiwitz station was relaying a Breslau station's program, which was broken off by the Poles.
They proceeded to broadcast a prepared proclamation, partly in Polish and partly in German, announcing themselves as "the Polish Volunteer Corps of Upper Silesia speaking from the Polish station in Gleiwitz." The city, they alleged, was in Polish hands.

What a koinkydink 'cause it sure ain't yer father's Christian PO
That’s the one, the SS left the bodies of Polish
criminals from concentration camps dressed in Polish
uniforms behind. Some of Reinhard Heydrich’s work.
I always find these reports of incursions suspect
at first after this.
The reporting is opaque to say the least, but it doesn't look like the Turks are denying it. Their war with the Kurds has not been a joking matter.
I’m routing for the Kurds myself.
Our paring down have created a vacuum to be filled.
In a speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs last April(2008)(Obama) he said, We have heard much over the last six years about how Americas larger purpose in the world is to promote the spread of freedom. The anticipated twist never came. I agree, Obama told the crowd. Turns out we havent done enough to mold the world in Americas image: America must lead by reaching out to all those living disconnected lives of despair in the worlds forgotten corners.
Heckuva job, Obie.
The Turk PM said that after ramadan they would be an increase in attacks against the PPK.
That’s putting the spin on it.
Why wait? Hasn't yet stopped the rest.
Are the new Kurds the same as the old Kurds we once embraced?
