Turkish media outlets reported that YDG-H, the youth wing of the PKK terrorist organisation, attacked police officers while they also set a private car on fire in Okmeydanı district of Istanbul on Tuesday.

The terrorists targeted patrolling policemen in the district with pump-rifles.

They also threw molotov bombs around the street and set fire on a private car, making it unusable.

No casualties were reported from the attacks.

According to local sources, another terror attack took place in Turkey’s southern province of Adana late on Tuesday when terrorists attacked a police department with weapons and hand made bombs.

Upon retaliating of the fire by policemen, the terrorist escaped the scene.

Security forces launched an investigation over the incident.

Meanwhile, an explosive planted by PKK terrorists on Tuesday targeted an armoured police vehicle in the southeastern Turkish town of Silvan. Three police officers died in the attack while three others were left wounded, security officials said.

Since the PKK’s umbrella organisation, KCK, unilaterally ended a two-year-long ceasefire with the Turkish government on July 11, almost 200 security officers and over 30 civilians have died as a result of PKK terror attacks
