ANKARA (AFP) - Turkish jets carried out a fresh bombing raid overnight from Thursday to Friday on Iraqi territory against separatist Kurdish rebels who were trying to cross the border, the army said on Friday. "A large group of terrorists was neutralised" during the operation on Thursday night, which also involved the use of artillery, army general Metin Gurak told a press conference. The raid came after Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan chaired a meeting of security chiefs to discuss fresh measures against Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) rebels after they carried out two deadly attacks in a week. Gurak said the rebels were "preparing to commit attacks in Turkey," but did not give out any toll for PKK losses from the raid. The action follows emergency talks involving Turkey's civilian and military leadership in the wake of two attacks on security forces claimed 22 lives in a week.
