7 PKK terrorists killed in Turkey's southeast
Terrorists were killed in Cukurca district of Hakkari province
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.
