Attacks by Kurdish rebels against military installations and police in southeast Turkey left at least 24 soldiers dead, officials said.

Sources of the security forces said that militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) launched simultaneous attacks on military posts in the province of Hakkari, near the border with Iraq.

The Turkish army has responded to the attack repressing Kurdish rebels and suspected sympathizers carried out air strikes against targets in northern Iraq.
