DAMASCUS, Syria. At least eight Turkish soldiers were killed in clashes with the militants from the outlawed PKK Kurdish separatist group in Turkey’s southeastern province of Hakkari, located right next to the Iraqi border.

According to Reuters, the clashes resulted in the killing of six Turkish soldiers, two security guards and five Kurdish militants.

Later, however, the Turkish security forces killed 17 PKK militants near the border area between Iraq and southeastern Turkey.

As of 2016, the Turkish forces are running a large-scale anti-PKK campaign in southeastern Turkey that even reached northern Iraq in few cases, following the collapse of the peace agreement reached with PKK in 2012.
