ANKARA, Nov 7 (Reuters) - Turkish ground forces carried out a two-day cross-border operation targeting Kurdish militants in northern Iraq on Nov. 5-6, Turkish media reported on Wednesday.

Broadcaster NTV said the Turkish commando troops had crossed up to 5 km (3 miles) inside Iraq. Turkey's military, which rarely talks to the media, could not immediately be reached for comment.
