Military says 13 PKK militants killed in southeast Turkey air strikes

Turkish security forces killed 13 terrorist Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK) militants in air strikes close to the countryand’s southeastern Iraq border, the army said, as a surge in violence showed no signs of abating.
Bloodshed has swept the predominantly Kurdish region since a two-year PKK ceasefire broke down in July, leaving hundreds dead and tearing apart a peace process launched by Ankara with the PKKand’s jailed leader Abdullah andOcalan in late 2012.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to fight the PKK until all of its militants are andquotliquidatedandquot.
The PKK militants were killed in air strikes on the andcukurca district of Hakkari province on Sunday, the army said in a statement on Monday. Four militants were detained in two other eastern provinces, Airi and Siirt, the army added.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation by Ankara, the United States and European Union.
World leaders are currently gathered in the Turkish coastal province of Antalya for the G20, with tackling terrorism seen as a key priority.
