Two Turkish soldiers were killed and more than 50 people wounded when a car bomb exploded at a military post in Turkey’s restive Kurdish-dominated southeast, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Tuesday.

Turkish authorities blamed the attack on the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has killed hundreds of members of the security forces in a resurgent campaign of violence in the last few months.

Davutoglu denounced the “vile attack” accusing what he termed the “terrorist organization” of resorting to such attacks whenever it was backed into corner, in reference to the PKK.

The attack late on Monday targeted a military outpost in the Hani district of Diyarbakir province and left 52 people injured, including civilians.

The security forces launched a search operation to capture those responsible following the bombing, a military source told AFP.

PKK says 34 so 34+2/2 = 18.

No. 34+2/2 = 35.
Division is a higher ranking operation, carried out first:
2/2=1
1+34=35
But:
(34+2)/2 = 18
