Six Turkish troops were killed and nine others were wounded when PKK militants attacked with rockets on a military command in southern Turkey.

Mehmet Celalettin Lekesiz, governor of the southern province of Hatay, said "that a group of terrorists launched a missile from a nearby highway on the Naval Reinforcement Command in the town of Iskenderun."

Six troops were killed in the attack and nine others were wounded. Three injured troops who are in life-threatening condition, were sent to the military hospital in the capital Ankara.

A number of troops were deployed in the town.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is currently in Chile on a state visit, sent a message to the General Staff and condemned the attack.

He also offered his condolences to those who lost their sons in the attack.
