World Bulletin / News Desk

 Members of the PKK terrorist group detonated a vehicle bomb early Saturday in front of a gendarmerie station in southeastern Diyarbakir province, a security source said.

No causalities were reported in the Hazro district but an operation is underway to find the perpatrators, according to the source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU and resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year against the Turkish state.

More than 300 civilians and nearly 800 security personnel have since been killed. Approximately 8,000 PKK terrorists have been killed or apprehended.
