Six members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) were killed in the southeastern province of Şırnak on Tuesday.
A group of PKK operatives assaulted Şehit Mehmet İşler Police Station on Tuesday night, injuring a police officer. Special operations teams from both the police and gendarmerie later launched an operation to find the gunmen, who escaped after the attack.
Another clash then ensued in the Namaz Mountains, to which the PKK gunmen fled. Six PKK operatives and a soldier died in the clash, while another soldier was injured.
