ANKARA: At least seven PKK terrorists have been killed on Thursday in the airstrikes by Turkish forces in the country's south-eastern and eastern provinces.

The Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK is listed as a terrorist organisation by Turkey.

Turkish General Staff, in a statement, said that during a counter-terrorism operation, Turkish fighter jets targeted the PKK terrorists preparing for attacks on bases, the Anadolu Agency reported.

"Two terrorists were killed in the rural area of Silopi district of south-eastern Sirnak province, five terrorists were killed in the rural area of Diyadin district in eastern Agri province" the statement added.

Moreover, one PKK terrorist surrendered in Mardin's Nusaybin district.

Earlier, Turkey security forces have killed at least five PKK terrorists in eastern and south-eastern Turkey.

The Turkish Armed Forces had said at least four terrorists, who were plotting a terrorist attack in Baskale district of Van province, were killed in an air operation in the district.

In the recent past, the clashes between the security forces and PKK terrorists have intensified, in which more than 1,200 people, including members of security forces and civilians, have lost their lives.
