AA photoFive security personnel were killed in two separate attacks by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the southeastern provinces of Siirt and Hakkari late on July 27.
Three soldiers were killed when PKK militants detonated roadside explosives by remote control during the passage of an armored military vehicle in a rural part of Siirt. A soldier was also wounded in the attack, while aerial and ground forces were dispatched to the area.
Meanwhile, an explosive-laden vehicle attack on a police control station seven kilometers from central Hakkari, along with a subsequent firefight, killed two police officers and wounded 10 other officers, as well as a civilian.
