Police kill PKK terrorist in southern Turkey clash

World Bulletin / News Desk

A PKK terrorist was killed in a clash with police in southern Adana province Monday, unnamed Turkish security sources said.  

Three PKK terrorists were involved in the clash during which a police patrol car came under attack in the province’s central Seyhan district, the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of restrictions on talking to media, said.

While one was killed, an operation to nab the other two PKK terrorists, who are said to be now on the run, was launched following the incident, they added.

The PKK -- also listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S., and the EU -- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state last July.

Since then, over 350 members of the security forces have been martyred and thousands of PKK terrorists killed in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
