Two soldiers were wounded in a rocket attack in southeastern Turkey on Tuesday, a security source said.

PKK terrorists targeted a military base near the village of Abali, around 10 kilometers (6 miles) northwest of the town of Lice in Diyarbakir province, the source said on condition of anonymity due to security restrictions.

Soldiers returned fire and two were injured in the exchange. Both were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment.

During the last 14 months, more than 600 security personnel have been killed and around 7,000 PKK terrorists killed.
