One soldier was killed and three others were injured in a PKK bomb attack on an armored military vehicle in the Viranşehir district of southern Şanlıurfa province on Sunday evening.

PKK terrorists detonated mines planted on the Viranşehir-Şanlıurfa highway when the military vehicle was passing by.

Police and ambulances were immediately dispatched to the scene.

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 2015.

Since then, more than 600 security personnel have been martyred and more than 7,000 PKK terrorists have been killed.
