5 PKK TERRORISTS KILLED IN SOUTHEASTERN TURKEY
At least five PKK terrorists were killed in southeastern Turkey during an ongoing counter-terror operation, a security source said Monday.

Five terrorists were killed by a drone in the Mt. Guven area of the Hakkari province's Cukurca district on the third day of the operation, the source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.

Earlier in the operation 11 terrorists were killed, the source added.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
