    Turkey has begun security operations against Kurdish rebels in the country's south-east and in Iraq.

    The moves come as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed a crackdown on terror after Sunday's attack in Ankara that killed at least 36 people.

    A suspected bomber, who also died in the blast, was a female member of the PKK, security sources said.Four people were held over the bombings in the south-eastern city of Sanliurfa, according to Turkish media.Officials were quoted as saying the car used in the bombing was traced to a showroom there.

    A curfew was declared in three towns in south-east Turkey, while warplanes struck PKK camps in Iraqi Kurdistan.Eleven warplanes carried out air strikes on 18 targets including ammunition dumps and shelters in the Qandil and Gara sectors, the army said. The PKK (the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party) confirmed the attacks.

    Wouldn't rule out false-flag until all the facts are known, especially where Turkey is concerned, I have to say. Erdogan is a murderous Machiavellian

    Clearly this is the racist Turkish media promoting lies to demonise innocent and peaceful Kurdish people.

    It's ok, because it's Turkish people.

    But if it was a French person killed, everybody would be upset. typical 2-faced people .

    I remember when there was a terror attack in paris and how everyone was making a big deal about it.

    It was a big deal because these things aren't expected to happen in Paris, and it was a Muslim attack on non-Muslims.

    This is just more Muslim on Muslim violence. Kurds are Muslims right?
