PKK terrorists attacked a vehicle carrying aid workers in Turkey's Van province on Thursday killing two aid workers and injuring one.
In a statement made by the governor's office, the attack was carried out on a vehicle carrying aid to a neighbourhood quarantined due to the Covid-19 pandemic measures.
Turkey's Communications Director Fahrettin Altun also condemned the terror attack in a tweet.
"Unfortunately a cowardly attack by the PKK on aid workers in Van has left two of our citizens martyred. I would like to extend my sincere condolences to their relatives and loved ones."
PKK, Van'da Vefa Sosyal Destek Grubuna yönelik alçak bir saldırıda bulundu. Ne yazık ki görevinin başındaki iki vatandaşımız şehit düştü. Bu iki vatandaşımıza Allah'tan rahmet, yakınlarına ve sevenlerine başsağlığı diliyorum. PKK'lı teröristler yine iyiliği, kardeşliği hedef aldı— Fahrettin Altun (@fahrettinaltun) May 14, 2020
The vehicle was carrying members of the Vefa Social Support Group, and operations are underway to catch the terrorists responsible for the attack, the statement added.
