PKK kills eight in attack on Turkish military outpost

Ocalan believed to have called for PKK ceasefire

News and Comment by The Kurdistan Tribune:

According to reports, Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) forces this morning killed eight Turkish soldiers and wounded 15 in an attack on a military post in the Hakkari province.

The soldiers, from the Dağlıca Internal Security Battalion Command, were at an outpost near the border with the Kurdistan Region.

The PKK had vowed to attack more Turkish military posts in revenge for the recent new wave of  arrests and harassment of Kurdish activists across the north of Kurdistan.

As this bloody conflict continues, we at KT believe that the only solution to the Kurdish cause lies in negotiations by both sides to the conflict and the implementation of a just peace plan.
