Seven Turkish soldiers killed in two PKK attacks in southeast Turkey
Two attacks claimed by PKK militants have killed six Turkish army soldiers in southeast of the country.
Security sources said Sunday that the first attacked killed five soldiers who were traveling in Hakkari Province when a roadside bomb ripped through their military vehicle.
They said PKK militants had planted the bomb on a road along the border with Iraq.
The Turkish army declared an alert for border units while an air-backed operation was launched to find those responsible.
State-run Anadolu agency quoted other military sources as saying that “PKK terrorists” were behind the attack.
