Two PKK extremists were killed in an operation on Monday in Turkey's eastern Van province..

Turkish security forces killed the pair who had occupied a resident's house in the province’s Edremit district, according to the source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

Ammunition was also seized during the operation.

The PKK -- listed as a extremist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year. Since then, more than 600 security personnel have been martyred and more than 7,000 PKK extremists killed.
