One soldier was killed in Van province -- close to the border with Iran -- after security forces responded to an attack by militants from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) on a bus with Iranian license plates.

Another soldier was killed in an attack in neighbouring Agri province. At least 21 members of the security forces have been killed by PKK since July 20.
