7 PKK terrorists killed in SE Turkey and Iraq's north


At least seven PKK terrorists were killed in Turkey's southeastern Hakkari province and northern Iraq on Saturday, according to the local governor's office, APA reports quoting Anadolu.

 

In a drone strike in Hakkari four PKK terrorists were killed, said a statement released by the Hakkari Governor's Office.

 

The terrorists were allegedly involved in the martyrdom of Capt. Murat Ucoz and a rocket attack on a military convoy in Cukurca district of Hakkari, the statement added.

 

Later on Saturday, PKK terrorists in northern Iraq fired mortars at Turkish forces in Cukurca district of Hakkari, according to a second statement from the governor's office.

 

Turkish forces killed three PKK terrorists in retaliatory fire, the statement added.

 

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015. Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of around 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
