About 300 Turkish troops have crossed into northern Iraq in a raid against Kurdish rebels, Iraqi officials say.
The lightly-armed soldiers moved up to three kilometres (1.9 miles) inside Iraq, an Iraqi Kurdish official said.
It is believed to be the first major Turkish troop deployment in Iraq since the cabinet backed the move last month to hunt PKK rebels based there.
"They are going there as reinforcements, they are not returning," the official said on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the media.
