Security forces seized on Saturday an explosive-laden tractor belonging to the PKK terror organization in a rural area in Yenişehir district of Turkey's southeastern Diyarbakır province.
Meanwhile, a PKK terrorist was also killed in clashes during the operation.
Upon the investigation, hand-made explosives, believed to be prepared to carry out an attack, were also found.
The tractor was detonated in a controlled manner by the security forces. A wide range operation have been continuing in the area.
On May 12, PKK terrorists detonated a bomb-laden truck on in Dürümlü, in Diyarbakır's Sur district, reportedly following an argument with a group of villagers who spotted the vehicle and began to chase it.
The blast killed 16 people and injured 23 others.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU, resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July, since when more than 430 members of the security forces have also been killed.
Turkish security officers have killed more than 4500 PKK terrorists since the launch of anti-terror operations on July 22, 2015, military sources said on May 11.
The number of killed terrorists include those killed in Turkey and also during the operations launched against the group in its northern Iraq camps.
The sources added that 695 were captured wounded, in addition to 716 others captured and 641 who surrendered to the security forces.
Ankara has stated its determined stance against PKK terror organization, vowing to continue operations until all the terror threats are cleared off.
