Ankara ( – Three Turkish soldiers were killed and one was injured in a mortar attack by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in southeastern Turkey on Saturday, Anadolu Agency reported.

PKK terrorists in northern Iraq fired mortar shells towards Turkey’s southeastern Hakkari province, leaving three soldiers killed and one injured, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said in a press statement on Sunday.

A manhunt operation was launched in the area to apprehend the attackers.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including many women and children.
