Turkey: 4 security forces and 1 civilian killed by Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants in terror attacks in southeast
Four Turkish security forces and one civilian have been killed in two separate armed attacks in the southeastern provinces of Diyarbakir and Sirnak.
One officer and two soldiers were killed in an ambush while Turkish troops were trying to secure a road for a military convoy in the southeastern province of Sirnak early July 30.
A written statement issued by the Chief of General Staff announced the killing of the three personnel, including one officer and two privates, by the separatist terror organization, the definition the army uses for the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). It stated that one guerilla was killed in the ambush.
