Turkish president spoke on the phone on Sunday with the mother of the teenage boy who was killed by PKK terrorists late Friday.
Eren Bulbul ,15, died from wounds sustained as he helped gendarmes track PKK terrorists in Macka, a town 22 kilometers (14 miles) south of the Black Sea province of Trabzon.
Gendarmerie Master Sgt. Ferhat Gedik, 41, was injured in the same incident and also killed.
An AK Party delegation visited Eren's house in Macka on Sunday and during the visit AK Party Deputy Chairman and Istanbul MP Ravza Kavakci Kan called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Kan later gave the phone to Eren's mother Ayse Bulbul to speak and Erdogan offered his condolences on the phone.
"We will take his [Eren's] revenge in a very different way," Erdogan said to her.
The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015.
Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of some 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including women and children.
