PKK terrorists on Tuesday injured 12 soldiers in a terror attack carried out by a remote-controlled bomb, in Turkey’s eastern Mus province.

The device, planted by militants near the Mus-Diyarbakir/Kulp highway in eastern Turkey, was reportedly detonated as a military vehicle was passing by.

All soldiers are transferred to Mus State Hospital.

Visiting injured soldiers at the hospital, Mus Governor Seddar Yavuz said that the soldiers are all in good condition.

PKK is recognised as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the EU, the US and NATO.

Thirty-year long armed conflict between the Turkish state and outlawed PKK has claimed more than 40,000 lives.

In early 2013, the government launched a "Peace Process" to end the years of armed conflict with the outlawed PKK and build reforms in line with the constitution. However, the umbrella group of all PKK-affiliated groups, KCK declared to end the ceasefire on July 11, 2015.

PKK terrorists killed nearly 25 civilians and a total of 113 Turkish security officials in numerous terror attacks since restarting the conflict against the Turkish state, targeting police and military officials.
