Four PKK militants killed in Turkey clashes

At least four members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) were killed on Wednesday in clashes with the Turkish military in the mountainous province of Tunceli, security sources said.

Hundreds of Turkish soldiers are participating in the operation against PKK militants in the region of eastern Turkey, making it one of the largest in recent months.

The operation comes less than a week after the Turkish bombing of some 50 PKK targets in northern Iraq, from where the militant group launches attacks inside Turkey.

Earlier this month five PKK militants and two Turkish soldiers were killed following a PKK attack on a military command post near the border with Iran and Iraq.
