Turkey: Three soldiers killed in Kurdish PKK attack


Three Turkish soldiers were killed today after clashing with Kurdish militants in the southeastern province of Hakkari, military sources said.

The military launched an operation in the region, which borders Iraq, following the clashes, the sources said. The privately-owned Turkish Dogan news agency reported that several Kurdish militants had been “neutralised” as a result.

Turkey’s southeast has been rocked by violence following the collapse of a 2-1/2-year ceasefire between the state and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in July last year. The PKK has repeatedly targeted security forces and civilians since.
