MARDİN – Doğan News Agency
AA photoOne police officer was killed on March 15 during clashes with outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants in the Nusaybin district of the southeastern province of Mardin, as a curfew entered its second day.
The special operations police officer, whose identity has not been revealed, was wounded during the clashes but succumbed to his injuries later in the Nusaybin State Hospital despite all efforts.
The security forces’ operation in the district started early on March 14 shortly after the curfew went into effect, with specialized soldiers and police officers removing barricades set up by PKK militants in the town.
