Must read

Three village guards were killed, two others were injured in the Yüksekova district of Hakkari province on Thursday when Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorists opened fire on the village guards who were providing security for ongoing construction on a road.

Turkish authorities had conducted direct talks with jailed PKK chief Abdullah Öcalan for several years until a truce in effect collapsed in the summer of 2015. Since then, there have been heavy clashes between the PKK and Turkish security forces.

More than 40,000 people, including 5,500 security force members, have been killed in four decades of fighting between the Turkish state and the PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the EU.
