PKK terrorists on Friday morning attacked police officers sitting at a local cafe in Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir province, killing one civilian, 22-year old Seyhmus Sanir, and injuring three policemen.

According to AA, the terror attack occurred in Yenisehir district of Diyarbakir. Sitting at a local cafe, the police officers and civilians were attacked with long-barrelled weapons.

22-year old Seyhmus Sanir who was working at the cafe was shot from his head during the attack and died on the scene.

The cafe’s owner, Recep Olmez, told reporters that Sanir was his nephew and he returned from military service a month ago.

The injured policemen were rushed to the hospital while police launched an investigation to find the assailants.

The hospital sources said that one police officer is in critical condition.

Also in Diyarbakir, PKK terrorists on Thursday evening opened fire on two officers stationed in front of the provincial headquarters of the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) in Kayapinar district of Diyarbakir.

Following the incident, the two policemen were taken to hospital and an unused flame thrower was found near the scene.

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

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

In early 2013, Turkey launched a "Peace Process" to end the years of armed conflict with outlawed PKK and build reforms, regarding the constitution. However, the militant group decided to end the ceasefire on July 11, 2015 using the construction of dams in southeastern Turkey as an excuse.

PKK terrorists killed at least 23 civilians and a total of 113 Turkish security officials in many terror attacks since renewing its offenses against the Turkish state.
