Bomb Blast Hits Military Vehicle, Wounds 17 in SE Turkey
Local Editor

Explosives planted by Kurdistan Workers Party [PKK] militants ripped through a Turkish military vehicle travelling through southeast Turkey on Monday, wounding 17 soldiers, the military said.

Bomb blast hits military vehicle, wounds 17 in southeast Turkey: army

The vehicle was passing through the Yuksekova district of Hakkari province, which borders Iran and Iraq, when the blast occurred, the army said, adding the wounded were immediately taken to hospital.

The army initially said four of the wounded were in a serious condition, but a later statement said none of the injuries were serious.

The PKK took up arms against the Turkish state in 1984 and more than 40,000 people, mostly Kurds, have been killed in the conflict. Turkey, the US and the EU designated the group as terrorist.

A ceasefire between the Turkish state and the militants broke down in July 2015 and the southeast subsequently saw some of the worst violence since the insurgency began.
