Turkish troops in pursuit of Kurdish rebels have crossed into northern Iraq and killed four militants, Turkish officials say.
The military said air strikes were also launched against rebel positions deeper inside Iraqi territory.
The offensive took place after rebels made an unsuccessful attack on border guards, Turkish officials said.
Turkey has been fighting insurgents of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) for more than a quarter of a century.
IF ERDOGAN CAN FIGHT AND KILL MUSLIMS HE CALLS TERRORISTS WHO WANT TO CARVE A NEW NATION OUT OF HIS SOVEREIGN NATION, THEN WHY CAN'T ISRAEL!?!?
ACTUALLY, THE KURDS HAVE BETTER CLAIM THAN THE GAZANS OR WEST BANK ARABS:
KURDS HAVE THEIR OWN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE AND HISTORY, SEPARATE FROM ARABS; WHEREAS GAZANS AND WEST BANK ARABS ARE REALLY JUST ARABS.
THIS PROVES THAT TURKEY'S ATTACKS ON ISRAEL ARE HYPOCRITICAL AND IMMORAL AND IR PROVES THAT TURKEY HAS FULLY JOINED THE RANKS OF THE AXIS OF EVIL.
ALSO: THE FACT THAT ERDOGAN HAS SO BLATANTLY VIOLATED IRAQ'S SOVEREIGNTY TELLS US WHAT HE THINKS OF OBAMA: HE DOESN'T FEAR OBAMA ONE WHIT.
