Turkish soldier martyred in PKK attack


One Turkish soldier was martyred on Monday in an attack by PKK terrorists in the southeastern province of Hakkari, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

PKK terrorists detonated an improvised explosive in the Cukurca district of the province, according to security forces who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

 

The injured soldier, Lt. Ozan Olgu Koreke, was rushed to Hakkari State Hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds, sources said.

 

Anti-terror operations are ongoing in the region.

 

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
