At least six PKK terrorists were killed and another captured during counter-terror operations in southeastern Turkey on Thursday, according to local officials.
In Siirt province's Eruh district, at least one PKK terrorist was killed and another captured during a counterterrorism operation, said the Governor's Office.
The operation remains ongoing, according to a statement by the office.
Also, the Turkish General Staff said on Twitter that three terrorists were killed in Şemdinli district of Hakkari.
Later on Thursday, Diyarbakir Governor's Office said two more terrorists had been neutralized in Hani district.
The two terrorists were reportedly responsible for two terror attacks this year that left one soldier and two village guards martyred.
