Two PKK terrorists were killed by security forces in eastern Turkey, the governor’s office said on Monday.

In a statement, the Tunceli Governor’s Office said the terrorists -- both women -- were killed when provincial gendarmerie units launched an anti-terror operation in rural Alibogazi in the Cemisgezek district.

The gendarmerie units also captured another woman terrorist who was injured during the operation, the statement added.

Anti-terror operations in the region continue.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU. Its over three-decade terror campaign against Turkey has taken more than 40,000 lives.
