Turkish jets destroyed six PKK targets in southeastern Turkey’s Hakkari province on Wednesday, the military said.
In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said the air operation took place in the rural Cukurca district.
In a separate incident, Turkish security forces killed a PKK terrorist in Cukurca, a security source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
Also, Turkish Security forces defused two tons of explosives planted on the Mardin-Sanliurfa Road on Wednesday, the same source said.
The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015. Since then, more than 600 security personnel have been martyred and more than 7,000 PKK terrorists killed.
