MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The security forces killed the militant identified as S.I., code-named Ozan, in the eastern Tunceli province as he tried to attack on a station of the Turkish forces, Anadolu news agency said, citing the General Staff's statement.
PKK is outlawed in Turkey as a terrorist organization.
Tensions between Ankara and the Kurds escalated in July 2015 when a ceasefire between Turkey and the PKK collapsed over a series of terror attacks allegedly committed by the PKK members.
Turkish authorities have imposed several round-the-clock curfews in Kurdish-populated towns in country's southeast, preventing civilians from fleeing the regions where the military operations are taking place.
