At least one person was killed and 12, including three servicemen, were injured on Thursday in a car bombing by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) on a military base in the Turkish southeastern Mardin province, local media reported.

The victim was identified as a 39-year-old civilian lorry driver, Halil Ibrahim Sevimli, who was driving by the military base at the time of the blast, Anadolu news agency said, citing a military source. Those injured were hospitalized.

The Turkish military commenced an operation to bust the attackers.

Violence in Turkey escalated in mid-2015, when the Turkish government launched a military campaign against the PKK, which is considered a terrorist organization by Ankara, in the country's southeast.
