Six soldiers were injured Monday after the terrorist PKK members detonated a roadside bomb in the Kocakoy district of Turkey’s southeastern Diyarbakir province, military sources said.

Military sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the roadside bomb controlled remotely was detonated while an army vehicle was passing. 

The injured soldiers were sent to Diyarbakir Military Hospital and Dicle University Medical Faculty Hospital.

An operation has been launched in the region to find the attackers.

Renewed violence in Turkey has come in the wake of the July 20 Suruc bombing, which left dozens of people dead. The incident was blamed on Daesh. The subsequent PKK-linked murder of two Turkish police officers at their home sparked a new wave of conflict in the country.
