Two policemen have died and 10 other security officers have been wounded in the latest PKK terror attack in the southeastern province of Sirnak.

PKK terrorists carried out a rocket-propelled grenade attack (RPG) against a police armoured vehicle in the central district of Sirnak on Monday afternoon according to Turkey’s Anadolu Agency.

All of the wounded have been hospitalised and one of them reportedly has suffered heavy wounds.

The PKK is considered to be a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the US, and EU and resumed its 30-year armed campaign against Turkey in late July after unilaterally ending a two and half year ceasefire.

Since then, more than 250 people including security officials and civilians have been killed in PKK terror attacks.
