PKK attack in SE Turkey martyrs two soldiers

Reuters Agency

Two soldiers were martyred in an attack by the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK) terrorist organization in Turkey's southeastern Hakkari province on Monday.

An improvised explosive device was detonated by PKK terrorists as an army truck drove past it near the Iraqi border.

An operation to neutralize the terrorists has been initiated.

More than 1,200 people, including security personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-long armed campaign in July 2015.
