Two village guards were martyred and three others wounded when the PKK extremist group attacked a minibus with rocket-propelled grenades in southeastern Diyarbakir province Wednesday, according to a military source.  

The guards came under attack when they were returning from the Tepe region following a security operation, the source, who spoke anonymously due to restrictions on talking to media, said.

The casualties were taken to the Diyarbakir Selahattin Eyyubi State Hospital.

An operation to nab the assailants remains underway.

Meanwhile, a PKK extremist was killed and another was wounded in an operation against the extremist group in northeast Turkey’s Erzincan province Wednesday, the regional governor’s office said in a statement.

Gendarmes also seized two Kalashnikovs, two backpacks, two umbrellas, a walkie-talkie and a pair of binoculars, the statement added.
