Six members of the outlawed the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) have been “neutralized” in military operations in Tunceli, Van and Hakkari provinces, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported on Wednesday.

Twenty PKK militants were also “neutralized” at the end of May in the Mount Tendürek region of Ağrı province when five soldiers and two village guards were killed in clashes between PKK terrorists and Turkish security forces.

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.
