 Turkish forces killed five PKK terrorists in the country’s eastern Agri province Thursday.

A clash broke out between security forces and PKK terrorists near Kislak in the rural Mt. Tendurek area in Agri’s Dogubeyazit district, according to a statement by the province’s governorship.

Two soldiers were martyred and 11 others injured later in the same clashes.

The two injured soldiers were rushed to a hospital in the Van province while others were sent to Dogubeyazit State Hospital.

Operations to nab the terrorists remained underway, a security source told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking with the media.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization also by the U.S. and the EU. It resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.

Since then, PKK terrorist attacks have martyred more than 600 security personnel and also claimed the lives of numerous civilians, including women and children, while more than 7,000 PKK terrorists have been killed in army operations.
