Four Turkish Soldiers Killed in PKK Attack

Four Turkish soldiers were killed and four others were injured in a roadside bomb blast staged by Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants on Wednesday in southeastern Turkey The explosion took place in Hakkari Province, the Daily Sabah said, adding that the injured soldiers were taken to a local hospital, Sputnik reported. A counter-terror operation was launched following the attack. Tensions between Ankara and the Kurds escalated in July 2015 when a ceasefire between Turkey and the PKK collapsed over a series of terror attacks allegedly committed by PKK members. Turkish forces are involved in anti-PKK raids across the country. Turkey has battled Kurdish fighters both at home and in neighboring Syria and Iraq.
