Turkey 's military said Friday that its air strikes in northern Iraq last week killed 25 Kurdish rebels and wounded many more. Military spokesman Brig. Gen. Metin Gurak cited intelligence reports for the casualty figures from the Oct. 17 attacks on Qandil Mountain an area where Kurdish rebels are said to train and where their leadership is believed to be in hiding. There was no immediate comment from the rebels, and the figures could not be verified independently. The military has staged several cross border air strikes since Kurdish rebels killed about two dozen Turkish soldiers in attacks earlier this month.
