Turkish army officer killed, five injured in PKK clash

One Turkish army officer was killed and five soldiers were injured in clashes with the terrorists in a rural of the eastern province of Agri, the Governor Mehmet Cetin told the state-run Anatolian Agency.

Turkey, provided with intelligence by the United States, stepped up its campaign to crackdown on the PKK both inside Turkey and in northern Iraq, after the terror organization increased its attacks on Turkish soldiers, as well as civilians.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist group by Ankara and much of the international community, including the EU and the United States.
