Tehran (KNA) - The Turkish military says a high-profile member of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militant group has been killed in a series of airstrikes carried out in Iraq's northern semi-autonomous Kurdistan region late last month.

The Turkish General Staff, in a statement released on Sunday, announced that Turkish fighter jets bombarded Hakurk-Kani Rash region on March 21, killing Birdal Burhanli, better known by the nom de guerre Agiri Mazlum Pirdogan, in the process.

The statement added that Pirdogan was on the Turkish Interior Ministry’s list of wanted terrorists.Last December, the governor’s office of Turkey’s eastern province of Tunceli stated that senior PKK terrorist Murat Dag, better known by the nom de guerre Ferhat Yilmaz, had been killed along with seven other terrorists during an offensive in the Pulumur district of the province, situated some 800 kilometers (497 miles) east of the capital Ankara.
