The source, who spoke on condition of confidentiality due to restrictions on speaking to the media said that PKK extremist had opened fire with long-barreled weapons on the Daloren gendarmerie station in the province’s Hozat district. Security forces then responded to the attack, the source added.

Since then, over 600 security personnel, including troops, police officers and village guards have been martyred and more than 7,000 PKK extremists killed or neutralized in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
