A serviceman of the Turkish Armed Forces was killed in a terrorist attack in northern Iraq, the Turkish Ministry of National Defense said.
Harun Chalyshkan was reportedly the victim of an improvised explosive device detonated by RKK terrorists.
The incident took place in the area of the Pençe Yıldırım anti-terrorist operation.
The Turkish Defense Ministry expressed condolences to the family of the deceased soldier and the entire people of Turkey.
RKK terrorists carry out bloody attacks to destabilize the situation and split Turkey.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that from 1984, when PKK militants first committed a bloody crime in Turkey, and until March 2020, 7,500 Turkish security forces and 6,800 civilians were killed at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union have listed PKK as terrorist organizations.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to resolve the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
In recent years, PKK has sought to shift responsibility for the bloody crimes in the region onto its offshoots.
In Syria, PKK terrorists hide behind the names PYD and YPG, and in the past two years have called themselves the “Syrian Democratic Forces.” In Iran, the PKK acts as the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK).
