DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:50 A.M.) – Eight Turkish soldiers have been killed over the past 24 hours due to actions by the PKK’s (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) guerrilla army, a statement by the group read.

On Monday afternoon, an all-female PKK platoon launched a hit-and-run attack on a Turkish military outpost at the Petrut hill in the countryside of Çukurca.

Following the raid, 7 Turkish soldiers lay dead on the battlefield while two sandbag trenches were wrecked and a MG3 machine-gun destroyed.

Shortly after, the Turkish Air Force flew dozens of sorties over the targeted area, hoping to eliminate the PKK fighters. According to the PKK statement, the women retreated into the mountains without suffering any casualties in their own ranks. As they fled the site, it was pounded by howitzers and mortars too.

This rural area, increasingly dangerous for Turkish Army troops, is located in Hakkari province in southern Turkey, a predominately Kurdish region that borders Iraq.

Elsewhere, a second PKK attack struck the Sikera Sipi hilltop in the Semdinli district ( Hakkari province), resulting in the death of at least one Turkish soldier on Monday.

UP YOUR’S. The Turk army can only win wars by numerical superiority, ethnic cleasing and genocide. Like they did in the past. See Wikipedia list of Turk massacres.

What is ashtonishing is that many PKK attacks on TSK in Turkey are either not reported in turkish media and if they are, PKK lossess are significantly higher and turkish lossess also significantly lower.

Is there somewhere where one can see the real turkish lossess?

Even the well trained & experienced Turkish army @ Atatürk times had to resort to cleansing & genocide to defeat the Kurdish.

And often NATO arms supported post WW II fight against PKK was much the same – ethnic cleansing and genocide. See for example history of Tunceli Province.
