Turkey military says 14 militants killed in southeast Turkey

Turkey’s military says it has killed 14 Kurdish militants in its ongoing crackdown on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants in the southeast of the country.

The army said in a statement on Monday that four PKK militants were killed on Sunday in the Sur district of Diyarbakir Province and 10 others were killed on Sunday in the Idil district of Sirnak Province.

Both regions are under round-the-clock curfew as Turkish military forces continue to crack down on a militancy in the Kurdish-dominated areas in the south and southeast of Turkey.

Violence has surged in Turkey’s Kurdish regions following the breakdown of a two-year ceasefire between Turkish security forces and the PKK last July.
