World Bulletin / News Desk

The PKK terror group targeted a Turkish soldier’s family with a roadside bomb in southeastern Sirnak province's Uludere district on Saturday, killing his father and seriously injuring his brother-in-law, a military source said.

The family members were visiting the soldier who was serving at the Kuresin military base in the Andac village of the district, a source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on talking to the media, said.

The soldier’s father, Huseyin Kelleci, had succumbed to his wounds at a hospital.

An operation was underway to nab the terror.

The PKK -- listed as a terror organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year. Since then, more than 300 civilians and nearly 800 security personnel have been martyred. Around 8,000 PKK terrorists have been killed or apprehended.
