The PKK terrorists killed one police officer and two soldiers in two separate terror attacks in Turkey’s southeastern provinces of Mardin and Hakkari.
Two soldiers were killed in a roadside bombing while they were in a moving vehicle in Hakkari.
According to Turkish media, 20-year old police officer, Yakup Mete, was killed on Sunday evening while he was about to enter his father’s house for his weekend holiday.
Heavily wounded after militants armed attack, Mete was brought to Nusaybin State Hospital where he could not be saved despite medical treatment.
PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, NATO, the US, and EU.
The group raised the number of its terror attacks since July 20 when Suruc suicide bombing allegedly carried out by ISIS claimed 34 lives in Turkey’s southeastern province of Sanliurfa.
Since then, at least 61 Turkish security officers and six civilians have been killed in terror attacks. Only one soldier among the 61 was killed by ISIS while rest were killed by the outlawed PKK.
PKK is an armed militant group that has been carrying out terror attacks, mostly in southeastern Turkey, since the early 1980s.
The 30 years of armed conflict between PKK and the Turkish Government has claimed more than 40,000 lives.
In early 2013, Turkey launched the Peace Process to end the conflict with the PKK. However, PKK decided to end the ceasefire on July 11, using the construction of dams in southeastern Turkey as an excuse.
