At least 10 Turkish soldiers killed in clashes across country

Ten members of the Turkish security forces have been killed in two separate attacks in southeastern Turkey blamed on Kurdish fighters, according to local media reports.

Turkish war planes destroyed PKK shelters and areas where arms were stored on Friday in the Buzul mountains in Hakkari province on the border with northern Iraq, the chief of staff said in a statement, quoted by Anadolu.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility.

The clash with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) broke out during military operations in Diyarbakir province after the authorities imposed round-the-clock curfews on 18 villages, the sources said.

The bomb, planted by the PKK, exploded when a vehicle carrying the forces passed by, it said.

Further east in Hakkari province, Turkish warplanes bombed suspected PKK targets and killed one militant, while soldiers killed two rebels when a firefight broke out.

Since then, PKK terrorist attacks martyred more than 600 security personnel and also claimed the lives of many civilians, including women and children, while more than 7,000 PKK terrorists have been killed in army operations.

Fighting between the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK and Turkey's security forces resumed previous year after a fragile peace process collapsed.
