Turkey held a funeral on Monday for Turkish police Ahmet Gilic, Ilker Narin and Yilmaz Dikmen who were killed by PKK terrorists in a terror attack in Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir Province on Sunday.

The police officers died after militants attacked a lodge building allocated for police officers.

The commanders who participated in the funeral tried to console the wife and daughter of officer Gilic.

The police officers were sent to their hometowns after the funerals.

The PKK has increased its attacks and killed over 70 security officers and 20 civilians since its umbrella organisation Group of Communities (KCK) announced on July 11 the end of a ceasefire with Turkey.

At least 943 PKK terrorists have been killed in security operations carried out by Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) since July 22, Anadolu Agency reported on Sunday.

The PKK is recognised as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, US, EU and UK.
