A second soldier has died from injuries sustained in a PKK terror attack in southeast Turkey on Wednesday night, a security source said.
The two soldiers were injured when a homemade bomb exploded during an anti-terror operation in Sur, Diyarbakir province, said the unnamed source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Both were rushed to the Diyarbakir Military Hospital after the attack.
A round-the-clock curfew has been imposed on Sur since early December as security forces attempt to flush out PKK terrorists.
Turkish security forces have killed 610 PKK terrorists in three districts of southeastern provinces of Diyarbakir and Sirnak since counter-terror operations began in Dec. 15, according to Turkish General Staff's latest statement issued Wednesday.
The PKK -- considered a terrorist organization also by the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its 30-year armed attacks against the Turkish state in late July last year.
