Two military personnel and two security guards were martyred early Saturday during an operation against PKK terrorists in the eastern province of Agri, province’s governorship told Anadolu Agency.

The governor Suleyman Elban added that eight security guards were also injured in the same operation in the province's Dogubeyazit district.

The operation came after PKK terrorists killed three migrants Monday and injured seven others.

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.
