DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:15 P.M.) – Three members of the Turkish Armed Forces were killed-in-action on November 28 due to attacks carried out by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), the latter group claimed in a statement.

According to the Kurdish militia, Turkish troops stationed at the Xwedê hill were targeted in a hit-and-run operation at approximately 09:30 which saw one soldier shot dead while a tent and a gun emplacement were destroyed. This strategic highpoint is located in the embattled Şemdinli district of Hakkari province, known to be an insurgent hotbed in a predominately Kurdish area of southeastern Turkey.

Meanwhile, PKK fighters in the neighboring Cele district carried out a swift attack around noon, targeting a group of Turkish soldiers stationed atop the Martyr Bager hill. On this axis, two Turkish soldiers were neutralized before Kurdish militants withdrew from the mountainous area under a barrage of howitzer and mortar fire.

A simultaneous PKK attack occurred around 12:00 in Şırnak’s Qileban district against the Turkish Army as the latter was setting up surveillance cameras in and around the Sinek and Maymun hills. While the soldiers came under intense fire, the number of those killed or wounded here could not be verified.

The PKK did not provide any information regarding its own death toll.
