The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) on Saturday killed two soldiers and injured two others in an attack that targeted their civilian car in the tense Cizre district of southeastern Şırnak, while a police officer was killed in another attack by the terrorists in the Sur district of Diyarbakır.
The attack in Cizre took place in front of a car mechanic, where there was a group of soldiers in plainclothes changing their car. A group of terrorists drove by and opened fire on the soldiers with automatic rifles. The gunmen fled the scene immediately after the attack.
Four soldiers were injured in the attack and were rushed to the Cizre State Hospital. Two of the injured soldiers, sergeant Mehmet Burak Demirci and specialized sergeant Halil Karakuşoğlu, died at the hospital despite medical efforts. The remaining two injured soldiers are still receiving treatment.
