A Turkish soldier was martyred Saturday in a clash with PKK terrorists in the Semdinli district of Hakkari province, the military said.

In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said the soldier was martyred in a clash at the base area of Mirgesav mountain at 3.05 p.m. (1205GMT).

The PKK - listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU - resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.

Since then, more than 450 Turkish security personnel have been martyred and over 4,500 PKK terrorists killed.
