One soldier was martyred and six others injured late Monday in a missile attack in eastern Turkey, according to the Turkish General Staff reports citing Yeni Safak.

Members of the terror group used rocket launchers and long-barreled weapons to attack a military convoy from the 2nd Border Brigade Command that was on the Cukurca-Van Highway at approximately 11 p.m. local time (2000GMT), said the source who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

The troops were attacked as they were being transported from the Cukurca district in Hakkari to Van, the source added.

The injured soldiers were taken to the hospital.
