SIRNAK, Turkey

Two Turkish soldiers were martyred and two others injured during operations launched against the PKK terrorist organization in southeastern Turkey on Friday.

According to a statement released by Turkish General Staff, the operations in the Cizre district of Turkey’s Sirnak province also left six PKK terrorists dead.

The PKK -- considered a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its armed campaign in late July.

Since then, more than 200 members of the security forces have been martyred and over 1,700 PKK terrorists killed.
