17 Turkish soldiers injured in PKK attack in Hakkari
Seventeen Turkish soldiers were injured when Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants detonated a bomb as a military vehicle was passing by in the Yuksekova district of Hakkari province on Monday.

Turkey General Staff said four of the soldiers were in critical condition, adding that a large-scale investigation was launched in the region to capture the PKK militants who fled the area.

More than 40,000 people, including 5,500 security force members, have been killed in four decades of fighting between the Turkish state and the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the EU.
