Text size Aa Aa

Turkish security forces killed eight Kurdistan Workers’ Party militants as the army launched major operations backed by curfews against the rebels in the troubled southeast.

In the latest escalation of a five-month campaign against the outlawed PKK, the security forces targeted rebels in the southeastern towns of Cizre and Silopi.

Claims an 11-year-old boy was also killed have not been verified.
