The US soldiers' uniforms were found in Turkey's south-eastern Sirnak province during an operation against the PKK, the Turkish Sabah newspaper wrote April 29.
The newspaper wrote that the uniforms were found in the apartments, where the PKK militants were hiding.
Earlier, Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that over 5,359 PKK members have been eliminated as a result of the operations against this terrorist group since July of 2015. The president added that 355 Turkish servicemen were killed during these operations, which will continue until the complete destruction of the PKK.
The conflict between Turkey and the PKK, which demands the creation of an independent Kurdish state, has continued for over 25 years and has claimed more than 40,000 lives. The UN and the European Union listed the PKK as a terrorist organization.
