SIRNAK, Turkey

A civilian on Wednesday was killed in an attack by PKK terrorists in southeastern Turkey, a health official confirmed. 

Engin Kenanoglu, 18, succumbed to his wounds at a state hospital in Besta district of Sirnak province, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

He was critically injured, earlier on Wednesday, when PKK terrorists opened fire on villagers who were collecting firewood.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and the EU. In its over three-decade-long terror campaign against Turkey, more than 40,000 people have been killed.
