PKK targets innocent civilians in eastern Turkey


The weakened PKK terror group is now targeting civilians to makes its presence felt, APA reports quoting Anadolu.

 

The terrorists have lost support of the locals in rural areas following counter-terror operations by Turkish security forces, and are now attacking city centers.

 

Their latest target has been foreign nationals.

 

Last week, three Afghan nationals were killed in Dogubeyazit district of eastern Agri province, when PKK terrorists attacked a minibus. Seven others were injured in the attack.

 

In the last seven months, at least 22 civilians were killed in PKK attacks in eastern and southeastern provinces.

 

Children and teenagers have also been targeted by the terrorist organization in recent months.

 

On Aug. 11, 16-year-old Eren Bulbul was killed in a PKK attack in Macka district of the northeastern Trabzon province, when he was showing a terrorist hideout to security forces.
