Ankara, July 30 () - The Turkish army said three soldiers were killed by terrorists in an ambush early July 30 in the southeastern Anatolian region.
A written statement issued by the Chief of General Staff announced the killing of three personnel, including one officer and two privates, by the separatist terror organization, the definition the army uses for the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). One terrorist was killed in the ambush.
The incident occurred while the Turkish troops were trying to secure a road for a military convoy in Şırnak, a southeastern Anatolian town.
It also said unmanned aerial vehicles, choppers and special teams have been sent to the region to eliminate terrorists.
Clashes between the PKK and the Turkish army intensified in the last ten days, as the Turkish army has been conducting strikes on PKK targets in northern Iraq.
