One soldier was martyred Sunday in a PKK terror attack in Turkey’s southeastern Hakkari province, according to security sources.
From the Iraqi border, the PKK terrorists attacked a military base in the province's Cukurca district, said the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
A soldier was wounded in the attack and later succumbed to his wounds at Hakkari State Hospital.
Anti-terror operations are ongoing in the province, the sources added.
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.
