DİYARBAKIR – Doğan News Agency
DHA photoA total of 19 soldiers were wounded on Nov. 10 in an outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) mine attack near the Silvan district in the southeastern province of Diyarbakır.
PKK militants detonated explosives placed on the road during the passing of a military convoy heading toward Silvan from Diyarbakır, where a curfew had entered its 8th day. Nineteen gendarmerie special operation soldiers were wounded by the explosion, with one in a critical condition.
A wide-scale operation has been launched in the region to apprehend the PKK militants responsible for the attack.
