A total of 10 PKK terrorists were killed in airstrikes in eastern Turkey's Catak district, the Governorate of Van said Saturday in a statement, DailySabah reported.
The airstrikes were launched around 10:15 p.m. after a drone identified the group of terrorists in Catak's Koruklu Valley, the statement added.
Founded in 1978, the PKK has waged a decades long bloody campaign against Turkey.
The PKK, which is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU, resumed its armed campaign in July 2015 after a brief reconciliation period.
Since that time, the PKK has been responsible for the deaths of some 1,200 security personnel and civilians, including women and children, while more than 4,000 security personnel and over 2,000 civilians have been injured.
