Turkish warplanes 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. While the government blamed the PKK for that attack, it was also claimed by a small leftist group, the People's Defense Units (HSB), on its Twitter feed.In new violence overnight, a Turkish soldier was killed in a gun attack on a military post in Sirnak, also blamed on the PKK.
