Turkish security forces have killed at least 11 PKK terrorists in southeastern Turkey on Friday, according to official statements issued Saturday.

Six terrorists were killed in an air-supported operation in the southeastern Sirnak province, the statement from the provincial governor’s office said.

In a separate statement issued by the governor's office in Diyarbakir, another air-backed operation killed five terrorists in the southeastern province.

A total of six Kalashnikovs, three rifles, three hand grenades as well as ammunition were seized in the operations.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015. Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians.
