PKK kills soldier in southeastern Turkey
ANKARA- Anadolu Agency
The statement added that air-supported operations in the area are ongoing.
So far, a PKK militant has been "neutralized" during the ongoing operation.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
On May 5 two Turkish soldiers were also killed in Şırnak during a clash with PKK militants.
PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.
