The Turkish General Staff has said that 17 PKK terrorists were killed in a fresh wave of anti-terror operations in southeastern Turkey on Wednesday.
The military said on Thursday that four PKK terrorists in Nusaybin district of Mardin province, seven others in Şırnak province and six other terrorists in the Yüksekova district of Hakkari province were killed.
It is added that several home-made explosive devices were disposed of and 50 shotguns and four radios were seized.
