As many as two Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) extremists have been killed in the eastern Turkish province of Van in an operation prompted by a tip-off.

The PKK members were discovered hiding in a house in İpekyolu town of Van.
A clash occurred after police asked the extremists to surrender. The extremists were killed and a large amount of weapons were seized in the raid.

Turkish forces have been conducting for more than two weeks an operation both by air and land in southeastern Turkey and northern Iraq's Qandil region, known as the main base for the PKK.
The PKK is listed as a extremist organization by the U.S., EU and Turkey.

Since July 2015, after the PKK broke a cease fire, at least 600 security personnel have been martyred and about 7,000 PKK extremists were killed.
