Three soldiers were killed on Sunday at 2.40 p.m. when PKK terrorists attacked an armored military vehicle in the southern town of Cizre in Şırnak province, the military said on its website.

As the vehicle was on the move, the terrorists detonated hand-made explosives they had previously planted on the road.

One police officer along with two soldiers were also injured during the attack, the army said.

The PKK - considered a terrorist organization also by the U.S. and the EU - resumed its armed campaign in late July. Since then, more than 200 members of the security forces have been killed.
