Seven PKK terrorists were killed Wednesday in an air operation in Turkey's southeastern Hakkari province, according to a military source.

The source, who spoke anonymously due to restrictions on talking to media, said five terrorists were detected by a drone in the Cayirli region of the Cukurca district.

Two other PKK terrorists were also killed in the same region in a separate air operation on Wednesday.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization also by the U.S., and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year.

Since then, more than 700 security force members have been martyred and around 8,000 PKK terrorists killed or apprehended.
