Two soldiers were martyred in a PKK terrorist attack in southeastern Sirnak province of Turkey on Friday, a security source said.
Two other soldiers were wounded when the terrorists launched an attack on Andac gendarme command in Uludere district, the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media, told Anadolu Agency.
The injured were airlifted to Sirnak State Hospital via helicopter.
The General Staff issued a statement later on Friday, saying six terrorists were killed in the ongoing operation in Uludere.
Sirnak Governorate had said earlier in the day that at least three PKK terrorists were killed on Friday in Bestler-Dereler. With the operation in Uludere, the number of terrorists killed in ongoing counterterrorism operations in the region has gone up to 35 since Wednesday.
Separately, two terrorists were killed during an operation in Cukurca district of neighboring Hakkari province on Thursday, according to a statement issued Friday by the Turkish General Staff.
One other terrorist was killed in a separate operation in eastern Bitlis province, the military said, adding four PKK terrorists had surrendered to security forces in Sirnak.
Turkish fighter jets also hit Thursday some shelters, caves and weapon emplacements belonging to the PKK terrorists in northern Iraq's Avasin-Basyan region.
More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015. -
