At least 11 PKK terrorists and two Turkish were killed in counter-terrorism operations in southeastern Hakkari province, officials said Saturday.
According to a statement issued by the Turkish General Staff, the terrorists were killed in an air-backed security operation after a PKK attack killed two soldiers.
In a separate PKK attack, two Turkish soldiers were killed and seven others injured by makeshift explosives in Çukurca district, the source said.
More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
