ANKARA (AA) - Four Turkish soldiers were martyred Wednesday in a roadside bomb attack in the southeastern Hakkari province, the military said Wednesday.
In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said nine other soldiers were wounded in the same PKK attack, four critically, along the Semdinli-Aktutun road.
"The wounded soldiers were taken immediately to hospital, and their treatment is continuing," the statement said.
PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU – resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.
Since then, more than 450 Turkish security personnel have been martyred and over 4,500 PKK terrorists killed.
