The clash occurred in Sirnak province where security forces have been battling members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) for about a week as part of an annual spring military crackdown on the militants as the winter snows melt.

The clashes are continuing and more troops have been sent to the area, the officials said, adding that F-16 warplanes have also been deployed against the militants.
