PKK terrorist attack on a military outpost in southeastern Van province killed a soldier and a village guard, and injured 10 soldiers, five village guards, reports said on Sunday.
The attack reportedly took place in Van's Erciş district, where PKK terrorists attacked the military outpost with a bomb-laden vehicle.
Ambulances have immediately been dispatched to the area.
Turkey 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.
