DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:00 P.M.) – Footage emerged today of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), an outlawed Kurdish separatist group, scoring a direct hit on a Turkish armored vehicle with a guided missile from afar.

Footage released by Gerîla TV, the official PKK media wing, shows a Turkish soldier ducking for cover as the missile struck the side up the armored vehicle, seemingly immobilizing it.

Judging by the commentary, the attack appeared to have been conducted by a female group of PKK fighters:

Although first released by the PKK on Thursday for security reasons, the attack took place at 11:30 on November 23.

According to a related PKK statement, the operation was carried out between the Giryares and Gite military outpost in the Silopi district of Sirnak province.

It is not known if the Turkish Army sustained any casualties from this specific attack; nevertheless, the PKK said Ankara’s military responded fire with a tank and mortar shells.
