PKK TERRORIST KILLED IN EASTERN TURKEY
One PKK terrorist was killed in a counter-terrorism operation in Turkey's eastern province of Bingol on Sunday, according to the provincial governor's office.

The operation was carried out in Adakli district's Ceribas area, the statement said.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization also by the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015.

Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of some 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children.
