PKK terrorists attacked two schools and a hospital on Thursday in Turkey’s southeastern provinces of Sirnak.

The terrorists set two school buildings on fire in the province’s Cizre district and also shot at fire brigade crews who arrived to the scene in respond to the fire.

Furthermore, PKK terrorists targeted a hospital with rocket-launchers in the same district, causing substantial damage to the building.

Meanwhile, two police officers were injured during the clashes with terrorists in Sur district of Diyarbakir on Thursday.

According to officials, a total number of 54 PKK terrorists have been killed in the most recent operations in Sirnak.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the US and EU.

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.
