PKK terrorists killed two Turkish soldiers in terror attack on Tuesday after killing another Turkish soldier in the same day during the day-long clashes in Lice district of Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir province.

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

The operation was executed after the Diyarbakir Governorate declared a curfew in the district which has been effective as of 1:00am on Tuesday midnight.

The PKK terrorists fired back on Turkish soldiers by long-barreled weapons killing two soldiers.

They were reportedly armed with rifles, mining the barricades and performing identity check on the streets.

Eventually, the group clashed with security forces who were assigned to remove the barricades.

The operations in the region have been continuing in Tuesday evening.

Earlier on Tuesday, another Turkish soldier was killed and three were wounded in terror attack by the PKK terrorists in the countryside of the Lice district of Diyarbakir.
