At least eight members of PKK have been killed in a Turkish military operation in the restive southeastern part of the country.

Turkish officials said on Tuesday that the PKK militants had been killed in the Kurdish-populated city of Yuksekova in Hakkari Province, located 1,026 kilometers (638 miles) east of the capital, Ankara, earlier in the day.

The authorities added that three members of the Turkish security forces were also wounded during the offensive.

The development came a day after Turkish military troopers killed 12 PKK members in the same district.
