Two soldiers, Gendarmerie Sergeant Mehmet Acar and Gendarmerie Abdulkadir Pektas, were killed in a terror attack conducted by suspected PKK terrorists who used a bomb to disrupt a military convoy in Turkey’s southeastern Sirnak Province on Tuesday morning.

Two people including one soldier, Kadir Akpinar, and one village guard, Hasan Akyol, were also wounded in the incident.

The PKK terrorists attacked the convoy with rocket-propelled grenades and guns after an explosive device detonated.

Security forces rushed to the scene after the explosion.

Operations backed by aerial support were lauched by security forces in the area to find the suspects.

The teror attack came two days after two soldiers were killed and 31 others wounded in a suspected PKK suicide attack in eastern Agri province.  

The PKK is listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the U.S. and the European Union.

With this latest incident, the total number of security officials killed by PKK terrorists in terror attacks since the ISIS-suspected Suruc suicide bombing has reached 22.

The Suruc suicide bombing took place in the Suruc District of Turkey's southeastern Sanliurfa Province on July 20 and claimed 32 lives. ISIS is thought to be responsible for the attack.
