Turkey Hits Pro-Kurdish Militants With Air Strikes After Rejecting Ceasefire

Turkey hit Kurdish militants with air strikes on Sunday, a day after the country's deadliest terrorist attack in its history, the BBC reported.

The Turkish air force struck positions of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in southeastern Turkey and northern Iraq after rejecting a ceasefire announced by the PKK on Saturday. Turkish military sources said that PKK positions in Metina and Zap, in northern Iraq, were destroyed.

Air strikes on Saturday targeting PKK positions in Diyarbakir, southeastern Turkey. Reports suggest the strikes killed 49 people but the number of dead or wounded could not be verified.

On Saturday, two suspected suicide bombings at a pro-Kurdish rally in the Turkish capital of Ankara killed up to 128 people. Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the attack could have been carried out by a number of groups, including ISIS, the PKK or far-leftist radicals.

Members of the pro-Kurdish opposition Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP), which had a major presence at the rally, said the government had blood on its hands after the attack.
