 At least 29 terrorists were killed in an counter-terrorism operation in Turkey’s eastern province of Agri, the governor's office said on Friday.

Gendarmerie forces conducted an operation after three trucks were set fire by PKK terrorists on a highway, the office said in a statement.

Three Turkish soldiers and one village guard were killed in the clash, the statement said.

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 around 1,200 people, including women and children.
