World Bulletin / News Desk

Seven Turkish soldiers, two seriously, were injured on Saturday in an attack by PKK terrorists in the southeastern province of Siirt, the local governor’s office said.

PKK terrorists detonated a roadside bomb as a military vehicle was passing by in the Sirvan district’s Ucyol region, said a statement from the governor's office.

The injured soldiers were rushed to Siirt State Hospital.

Anti-terror operations are ongoing in the region.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
