Two police officers were killed when a police vehicle came under attack from outlawed PKK on Tuesday evening, while two other officers were injured in the southeastern province of Hakkari.
The attack carried out by IED’s took place on Hakkari-Van highway. The IED was detonated with a remote control from distance.
Security officers launched a wide-scale operation to eliminate the PKK terrorists.
PKK is recognised as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the EU, the US and NATO.
Also earlier in the day, 12 soldiers were injured in a terror attack carried out by a remote-controlled bomb, in Turkey’s eastern Mus province.
The device, planted by the militants near the Mus-Diyarbakir/Kulp highway in eastern Turkey, was reportedly detonated as a military vehicle was passing by.
All soldiers were transferred to Mus State Hospital and officials said that the soldiers are all in good condition.
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 organisation of all PKK-affiliated groups, KCK declared to end the ceasefire on July 11, 2015.
PKK terrorists killed 25 civilians and a total of 115 security officials in numerous terror attacks since restarting the conflict against the Turkish state, targeting police and military officials.
