Turkish soldiers saved a family of five, who were stuck in their house, due to booby-trapped bombs that were setup by PKK terrorists on the streets of Turkey’s southeastern Sirnak Province on Saturday.

The soldiers reached the family during a security operation, which was launched to remove road barricades and defuse explosives planted by the PKK.

Security forces safely evacuated the family, including two children and a disabled man, from the area and transferred them to a nearby district, where their relatives lived.

More than 200 security officers have died in PKK terror attacks in Turkey, since the group’s umbrella organisation, the KCK, unilaterally ended a two-and-a-half-year-long ceasefire with the government on July 11 and threatened Turkey with attacks.

Turkish Security Forces have launched extensive internal security operations in certain districts of Sirnak Province, including Cizre and Silopi, to scatter the network of PKK groups.

PKK terrorist attacks have also claimed the lives of a total number of 37 security officials along with several civilians since the beginning of 2016.
