15 terrorists killed in airstrike in eastern Turkey


Baku-APA. A Turkish airstrike killed at least 15 PKK terrorists in the eastern province of Tunceli, authorities said early Friday, APA reports quoting Anadolu.

 

The Interior Ministry said in a statement that the operation was conducted in the Pulumur district.

 

Turkish military said that after receiving intelligence, the operation lasted less than an hour and also successfully destroyed weapons pits and six dynamic targets.

 

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year. Since then, more than 700 security force members have been martyred and around 8,000 PKK terrorists killed or apprehended.
