At Least 6 Suspected PKK Guerrilla Members Killed in Turkish Airstrikes

ISTANBUL – At least six suspected members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were killed on Friday in two airstrikes by the Turkish army in the southeast of the country.

The armed forces explained that three suspected so-called terrorists were killed in an airstrike in Semikli, in the Hakkari province, as cited by the semi-official Anadolu news agency.

Three other suspected guerrilla members were killed during another airstrike in Siirt, the provincial government’s office announced.

Security forces suspect that the guerrilla members killed in Siirt were responsible for the attempted assassination of a government representative last July and the death of a police chief in the area.

The Turkish Army frequently carries out air operations against PKK bases and camps in southeastern Turkey and northern Iraq.

Last May, the government launched an operation against the PKK in the southeast of the country involving some 7,000 soldiers, supported by aviation.
