ISTANBUL, Turkey - Turkish airstrikes and artillery have hit more than 200 Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq since Dec. 16, killing hundreds of insurgents, the military said Tuesday.

Up to 175 rebels were killed on Dec. 16 alone, the military said in a statement posted on its Web site. The military said other hideouts were hit in a cross-border airstrike on Saturday, followed by artillery fire.

The U.S. has been providing intelligence to Turkey on the Kurdish rebels since a Nov. 5 meeting between Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Bush, who said the rebel group was an enemy of the U.S., Turkey and Iraq.

A coordination center has been set up in Ankara so Turks, Iraqis and Americans can share information. A Turkish air strike in Iraq on Dec. 16 was due to intelligence shared by Washington.

Funny how they are enemies now, but for us to kill Saddam Hussein (among tens of thousands of other Iraqis) they were the poster children of his atrocities.

I remember the vehement right wing hawks using the Kurds all the time as a symbol of his horror. Being ignorant of the fact that the kurds are the primer opium movers in that region, and they are armed to the gills.

Maybe the Turks will exterminate all the Kurds and feel national pride again after their failure to annihilate the Armenians, and George Bush can say how great a terror fighter and peace bringer he is.

Sheesh. The Kurdish people were bombed with gas by Saddam, not the PKK Rebel Kurd Organization fighting for the creation of the state of "Kurdistan" in Iraqi and Turkish territory. The regular Kurdish folks, unaligned, were killed, for fear of Iranian infiltration and also because they feared the Kurds would welcome the Iranians.

The PKK is a cheesy psuedo-marxist/islamist/nationalist group jack of all trades group just being a royal pain in the arse for everyone while much more important things are going on. You have a free Northern Iraq autonomous region, be freaking happy you dummies. dont do bringing the hammer over onto your own head for no reason, its stupid. They have oil, and good relations with the U.S. and Iran until very very recently.

There's alot of guys in Iraqi Kurdistan feeling abaonded by Bush right about now.. Kurds and U.S. Forces, both. Lol.

Gas bought from the United States, and the United States still did business with Hussein even after the gassing was made public.

You know for a fact that the PKK was not in the midst of these so called 'regular joe kurds'? I'm sorry, but I can't imagine you walking up to them as they choke and asking "hey, you with the pkk?", certainly you couldn't figure that out after the fact either because dead men don't talk.

The question is, whose propaganda do you prefer to believe.

I'm sure a few PKK were in the villages that were gassed, no doubt.

But at the same time, PKK was not the reason TO GAS. They had absolutely nothing to do with it.
