Counterterror operations kill 6 PKK terrorists


Six PKK terrorists including a senior member were killed in two separate counterterrorism operations in eastern Turkey, the governorship said on Thursday, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency. 

 

According to a Sirnak governorship statement, five PKK terrorists were killed in the Incebel-Kato mountain region. A cave used by the terrorists was also destroyed. 

 

Another military operation was conducted in the Malazgirt district of the eastern Tunceli province. A senior PKK member was killed in the operation, the Tunceli governorship statement said.

 

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015.

 

Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children.
