One Turkish soldier, many PKK terrorists killed in fresh clashes
At least one Turkish soldier was killed in clashes with the terrorist Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in southeastern Turkish province of Shırnak on Wednesday Today`s Zaman reproted

Private Cihan news agency reported that along with the Turkish soldier, many PKK terrorists were also killed during the clashes near Altındağ village of Shırnak's Beytüşşebap district.

The body of the soldier was brought to Shırnak Military hospital with a helicopter. The military operation in Kato mountain against the PKK terrorists continue.

The military operations in Beytüşşebap were launched after ten Turkish security officials, including soldiers and policemen, were killed in clashes with the PKK on Sunday when the terrorist group attacked police and military outposts in the southeastern province of Şırnak, which borders northern Iraq.

The simultaneous attacks came late on Sunday in Şırnak's Beytusshebap district from four different spots targeting several security locations with rocket launchers and long-range weapons. A clash ensued after security forces responded to the attacks. At least 20 PKK terrorists were killed in the clash.

The military sent reinforcements to Beytüsshebap to fight the terrorist group.

The bloody attacks on the police and military outposts came amid ongoing and heated clashes in southeastern Turkey along the border with Iraq. The Turkish military launched a large-scale operation in Hakkari's Shemdinli district last month when PKK terrorists blocked the road of a village in the region and interrogated villagers. Security sources say more than 150 PKK terrorists have been killed there since the operation began.

Listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU and the United States, the PKK has been carrying out a bloody war in Turkey's Southeast since 1984. More than 40,000 people have been killed in the conflict between the terrorist PKK and Turkish forces since the PKK launched its fight with the aim of establishing a separate Kurdish state in the predominantly Kurdish Southeast.

The latest PKK attack is reminiscent of an earlier bloody attack by the same terrorist group in the southeastern province of Hakkari in early August. Six soldiers and two village guards were killed and several others wounded when PKK terrorists attacked military outposts in the district of Çukurca.

Within its borders, the Turkish state has granted more cultural rights to Kurds as a means of easing the long-running conflict with a significant portion of the ethnic minority, but there is still a great deal of distrust between Ankara and many Kurds.
