Soldier killed after PKK terrorists open fire on military convoy

A soldier was killed and a police officer was injured after militants from the terrorist Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK) opened fire on a military convoy in the tense Yanduksekova district of Hakkari province early on Tuesday.
Turkish media reports said on Tuesday that the convoy was travelling from the iemdinli district to Yanduksekova when it was exposed to the attack. The PKK militants fled the scene after security forces responded to the attack. An operation was launched to find the terrorists, and the injured police officer was taken to Yanduksekova State Hospital for treatment.

The Dogan news agency reported that police also found explosives and hand grenades in the operation, which was carried out by the izmir Police Department.
Meanwhile, soldiers destroyed caves that were being used by PKK terrorists to take shelter between the Kozluk and Sason districts of Batman province on Tuesday. The Batman Governorand’s Office, in a written statement, said the two caves were destroyed during a large-scale military operation conducted in the location between Nov. 6 and 8.
Ever since a suicide bombing in the Suruandc district of ianliurfa killed 33 activists and injured 100 more on July 20, clashes involving the PKK have grown in number. Two police officers were executed by PKK members on July 22 in retaliation for the Turkish authoritiesand’ perceived failure to prevent the Suruandc attack. The violence and PKK-led attacks further escalated when Turkey carried out air strikes on PKK bases in neighboring northern Iraq.
The violence has effectively shelved a settlement process with the PKK and the accompanying cease-fire that began in late 2012. More than 150 members of security forces have been killed in the conflict with the PKK or in attacks committed by the terrorist group since violence resumed in late July.
