ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Two Turkish soldiers have been killed and another two injured in an ongoing attack by Kurdish rebel fighters against a military post in the Sirnak province of southeastern Turkey, Turkish military officials have stated.

The statement said that the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) fighters launched the attack Friday morning in the district of Uludere. 

The PKK has not released any statements.

The Turkish Gendarmerie General Command said that the clashes are continuing and they have launched an operation to fight back against the Kurdish rebels. 

The PKK has been engaged in a three-decade long conflict against the Turkish state that has claimed at least 40,000 lives, many of whom are Kurds.

The PKK, a named terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the EU, calls for greater national rights for the millions of Kurds who are living in Turkey’s east and southeast.

The year-and-a-half peace process that sought to end the conflict was shattered in mid-2015 when the fighting resumed, and has since claimed about 2,000 lives.

PDK sucking up to Turkey and they wont even reconise a free Kurdistan in KRG region. Nor will Iran. PDK should work with PYD to reach the sea, there is no other way.
