ISTANBUL, Aug 11 : Turkish warplanes on Tuesday carried out a new wave of air strikes against Kurdish militants in the southeast of the country in retaliation for a day of bloody attacks that left six members of the security forces dead.
The military bombed 17 targets of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in the southeastern Hakkari province, destroying them all, the army said in a statement.
The new wave of strikes carried out overnight came after one of the bloodiest days of attacks in the country since Turkey launched a relentless bombing campaign against PKK targets late last month.
Ankara is pressing a two-pronged "anti-terror" offensive against Islamic State (IS) jihadists in Syria and PKK militants in northern Iraq and southeast Turkey following a wave of attacks in the country.
Meanwhile, Turkish officials say Iranian Foreign Minister Jawad Zarif has postponed his visit to Turkey.
Zarif was scheduled to hold talks with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, on Tuesday.
