Security sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking with the media, said the casualties came from a clash between Turkish security forces and PKK terror in the Mt. Guven area, close to Turkey's border with Iraq.
The PKK terror had attempted to infiltrate a military base.
Additionally, a large number of terrorists have reportedly been neutralized in an air-supported operation in the area. The operation is ongoing.
