SULAIMANIYA, Iraq (Reuters) – Turkish warplanes targeting Kurdish rebels bombed villages deep in northern Iraq on Sunday, killing one woman and forcing hundreds of people to flee their homes, local officials said.

In Ankara, the Turkish military’s General Staff confirmed in a statement its warplanes had attacked targets of the separatist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which uses northern Iraq as a base from which to attack security forces inside Turkey.

But the head of the General Staff, General Yasar Buyukanit, quoted by Turkey’s Anatolian state news agency, denied any civilian targets were hit and said his forces had acted with the implicit approval of U.S. occupying forces in Iraq.
