At least 11 terrorists of PKK's Syrian wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) were killed on Friday after the group attacked a military border station in southeastern Turkey, the military said in a statement.
The YPG terrorists launched a mortar attack on a border station in the Ceylanpınar district of Şanlıurfa province. Turkish soldiers immediately retaliated to the attack.
A vehicle carrying the terrorists was also destroyed in the attack, the military added.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU and Turkey also considers its Syrian affiliate the PKK/PYD a terror group. However, the U.S. regards the latter as a key ally in the fight against Daesh in Syria.
Turkey has repeatedly called for an end to U.S. support for the PKK/PYD terror groups.
