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.
