Turkey shelling Kurd rebels in Iraq
By Selcan Hacaoglu, Associated Press Writer
Turkish troops have shelled suspected Kurdish rebel positions in Iraq, a government official said Wednesday, as military and civilian leaders were expected to discuss the scope and duration of a cross-border incursion.
Turkish artillery units were shelling rebel positions as late as Tuesday night in northern Iraq, a government official said on condition of anonymity, because he was not authorized to speak to the media. The strikes were in retaliation for a rebel ambush on Sunday that killed 12 soldiers and apparently led to the capture of eight.
The official did not say which areas were targeted and refused to give further information.
Local media have reported that Turkish jets have struck targets inside of [Iraq] since Sunday's attack, but the government official denied that air power was used.
Iraqi Kurdish officials have confirmed Turkish shelling along the border area.
Turkey seems willing to refrain from invading Iraq until at least early next month, when it is scheduled to host foreign ministers for a meeting about Iraq. U.S.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has proposed a meeting among the United States, Iraq and Turkey during the Nov. 2-3 conference in Istanbul.
