Two police officers have been killed in a terrorist attack carried out by PKK in Turkey's southeastern Diyarbakır province.
The attack was carried out early Sunday against police who were trying to fill in the ditches dug by PKK terrorists to plant explosives.
Governorship of Diyarbakır declared a curfew in the district after the attack.
In a separate incident on Sunday, PKK terrorists killed a civilian trying to escape from their unlawful 'road check' between Hakkari and Şemdinli in southeastern Turkey, the Turkish army announced on its official website.
The civilian who saw that the terrorists were performing a 'road check', tried to flee the scene, but was exposed to terrorists' gunfire upon which he was severely injured. He later lost his life in the Şemdinli State Hospital.
Another attack was carried out by the terrorists on Saturday night, and a civilian was reportedly injured.
Turkey has been hit by violence since a suicide bomb attack by a suspected ISIS supporter killed 32 activists in Suruç on July 20.
The Turkish government has intensified its counterterror operations following the recent attacks carried out by the PKK, which is recognized as a terrorist organization by the U.S., the EU and Turkey.
Formed in 1978, the terrorist group has been fighting the Turkish government for an independent state until the early 2000's. The group then shifted its goal to autonomy in predominately Kurdish inhabited regions of Turkey.
The PKK announced on July 11 that the cease-fire which was declared via a message from the PKK's imprisoned leader Abdullah Öcalan in 2013 has ended.
The Turkish Air Force has been carrying airstrikes against the PKK in northern Iraq and the ISIS terrorists in northern Syria.
