SIRNAK, Turkey (AA) - One Turkish soldier was martyred and two others injured in an attack by PKK terrorists in Turkey’s southeastern Sirnak province, authorities said Wednesday.
In a statement, the provincial governor’s office said terrorists attacked the soldiers while they were guarding Turkish Petroleum Corporation (TPAO) workers in the Silopi district.
It added that operations were ongoing in the region.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including many women, children and infants.
