Three Killed In Outpost Attack In Turkey

At least three people, a Turkish soldier and two PKK fighters, have been killed, after militants attacked a military outpost in southeastern Turkey.

A Turkish soldier and two fighters from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were killed when militants attacked a military outpost in the southeastern province of Diyarbakir, security sources said on Wednesday.

At least four other soldiers and a local security contractor were wounded when militants fired a rocket-propelled grenade at the outpost, sparking a firefight.

The incident is the latest in a surge of violence during the recent weeks between Turkish security forces and the PKK.
