Turkish General Staff announced that two soldiers were killed and one was injured in clashes with PKK terrorists in the southeastern province of Hakkari on Wednesday.

According to the statement, the soldiers were conducting a land operation following an air operation with the army on Nov. 3 in the Daglica area of Hakkari’s Yuksekova district against outlawed PKK targets.

“Two of our friends were martyred and another one was injured in clashes during the operations in Yuksekova district on Nov. 4,” the statement confirmed.

The General Staff also said at least 15 terrorists were killed in clashes and that operations will continue against the PKK terrorists in the Daglica area as part of the operations targeting the hideouts of the small terrorists groups left in the area.

With the latest incident, the total number of soldiers killed in PKK terror attacks have increased to 150.

Security officials and over 30 civilians were killed by PKK in Turkey since the group’s umbrella organisation, KCK, unilaterally ended a two-and-a-half-year-long ceasefire with the government on July 11 and threatened Turkey with attacks.
