A PKK rocket attack on a Turkish military base martyred one soldier and injured six others Monday, according to security sources.
PKK terrorists fired on the facility in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir's Silvan district said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
The wounded soldiers were taken to Diyarbakir’s Selahaddin Eyyubi State Hospital.
An operation was launched in the area to apprehend the terrorists.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU. It resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.
Since then, PKK terrorist attacks have martyred more than 600 security personnel and also claimed the lives of numerous civilians, including women and children, while more than 7,000 PKK terrorists have been killed in army operations.
