PKK terrorists attacked eight schools and a dormitory with homemade explosives and blast bombs on Thursday in Idil district of Turkey’s Sirnak province, continuing to target innocent civilians.

PKK terrorists reportedly attempted to set the schools on fire, causing a great panic among teachers and children inside the buildings.

Arriving at the scene, security forces safely evacuated the civilians from the buildings.

While no casualties were reported from the attacks, the children were observed to be highly traumatised as they left the buildings screaming.

It was also reported that some parts of the schools and the dormitory were partially damaged.

The police launched an operation in the region to seize the terrorists.

The PKK- considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the US, and EU- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in late July, after unilaterally ending a two-year ceasefire.

Since then, almost 300 people including security officials and civilians have been killed in PKK terror attacks.
