From CNN:

“Turkish fighter jets have targeted a Kurdish militant group after twin bomb blasts that killed dozens in Istanbul over the weekend.

The Turkish army said in a written statement that, sometime around 11 p.m. local time Sunday (3 p.m. ET), the air force’s jets struck 12 different targets belonging to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in the Zap region of northern Iraq.
The strikes were expected after the Kurdish militant group claimed responsibility for two bombings that led to the deaths of 44 people, including 37 police officers, and injured 155 others, according to Turkish Health Minister Recep Akdag.”
