Turkish security forces kill 12 PKK rebels in southeastern Turkey

Turkish security forces killed 12 militants of the outlawed Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) during two operations conducted in southeastern Turkey, a military statement said on the website of Turkish General Staff on Saturday.

The statement said that the security forces wiped out the 12 PKK members, who were trying to sneak into Turkey along Iraqi border, during two separate operations staged in Uludere town of the southeastern province of Sirnak between May 12 and 14.

What, you mean you hadn’t heard about that?
