Soldier killed in PKK attack in southeast Turkey

One soldier was killed after explosives believed to have been planted by the terrorist Kurdistan Workersandrsquo Party (PKK) exploded during an anti-PKK operation in the southeastern province of iirnak on Saturday.
A statement posted on the website of the General Staff said a soldier was killed after explosives thought to have been planted by PKK terrorists during an operation in the Karaandcali area of the Uludere district.
The Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK), an umbrella group that encompasses the terrorist Kurdistan Workersand’ Party (PKK), announced this week that it ended the unilateral cease-fire it declared ahead of the Nov. 1 repeat election, amid already escalating tension in predominantly Kurdish region.
Ever since a suicide bombing in Suruandc 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 that began in late 2012 and its accompanying cease-fire. More than 150 members of the security forces have been killed in clashes with the PKK or in attacks by the terrorist group since violence resumed in late July.
