Two Turkish soldiers were killed and two others were wounded on Sunday following a PKK terror attack on a Turkish military vehicle in Turkey's southeastern province of Sirnak.

According to security sources a car carrying soldiers in civilian clothes were attacked by PKK terrorists with long barrelled weapons in Sirnak’s Cizre district.

The two wounded officers were taken to different hospitals to receive medical treatment.

On the same day in Diyarbakir’s central Sur district, the provincial governor’s office and security sources announced that PKK terrorists shot a policeman who was heavily wounded, but later died in a regional hospital.

On November 28, terrorists killed the President of Diyarbakir Bar Association Tahir Elci and two police officers had been killed in Sur district.

A curfew was declared in six neighbourhoods of the district on Wednesday, as part of ongoing anti-terror operations.

The PKK, which is considered a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, have been carrying out armed attacks against Turkish security officials and civilians since 1980s.

Since July, more than 180 Turkish security members have been killed by PKK attacks, while at least 1,700 PKK terrorists have also been killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq, including air strikes.

Meanwhile, eight DAESH terrorists were detained on the Syrian border as they were trying to enter Turkey illegally.
