According to a statement issued by the Hakkari Governor's Office, an improvised explosive device planted by PKK terrorists detonated when a vehicle carrying security guards to the base area in Semdinli district passed by.

The injured have been taken to a state hospital.

An operation launched against the terrorists is underway.

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 1,200 security personnel and civilians.
