MARDİN – Anadolu Agency
AA photoOne police officer was killed on March 18 during operations conducted against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Nusaybin district of the southeastern province of Mardin.
PKK militants detonated hand-made explosives during security forces’ search examinations in the Dicle neighborhood, wounding three police officers, one of whom succumbed to his injuries at Nusaybin State Hospital.
The operations in Nusaybin started on March 14, shortly after a curfew went into effect, with specialized soldiers and police officers removing barricades set up by PKK militants in the town.
