A building which was damaged by PKK terrorists is seen as Turkish security forces patrol the perimeter, after a counter-terror operation in Cizre.

Four Turkish police officers were wounded on Saturday when their armored vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED), in a terror attack by PKK terrorists.

A military source said that the attack took place in the Vakifkent neighborhood of southeastern Sirnak province.

According to some media reports, PKK terrorists also targeted the police and military lodgings in Sirnak where the families of officials live, using automatic weapons.

No casualties were reported from the incident.

More than 300 security officers have died in PKK terror attacks in Turkey since the group’s umbrella organisation, the KCK, unilaterally ended a two-and-a-half-year-long ceasefire with the government on July 11 and threatened Turkey with attacks.

Furthermore, PKK terrorists have been disrupting the social order in many provinces, as they dig up trenches and set road-barricades on streets.

The terrorists have also set fire to several school buildings, hospitals, mosques and even targeted kindergartens.

The PKK is considered a terrorist organisation by the US, the European Union and Turkey.
