A police officer was wounded Saturday in a terrorist PKK attack on a police unit in the southeastern Diyarbakir province, according to a security source.
The source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking with the media, said one terrorist was killed during clashes after the attack in the Baglar district.
The wounded officer was rushed to a hospital in the region, the source said.
The PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU – resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year and has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,100 security force members and civilians, including women and children.
In a separate incident, six people were wounded after a grenade was thrown into a cafe by an unidentified person in the Kayapinar district of Diyarbakir, police said.
Security forces have begun investigations of both attacks.
