ISTANBUL, Turkey (CNN) -- Turkish warplanes bombed suspected Kurdish rebel targets in northern Iraq on Thursday, a military spokesman said Friday.
The Turkish military has been carrying out airstrikes against camps of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, periodically over the past year. The targets are typically in remote mountains on the Turkish-Iraqi border.
Earlier this week, Turkey's military announced it would establish a series of "temporary security zones" along the border, where travel would be restricted from March 15 to June 15.
The announcement prompted speculation Turkey could be planning a cross-border ground operation.
