ANKARA, Aug 18 (KUNA) -- A roadside bomb allegedly planted by the Kurdistan People's Party militants killed a Turkish man in the southeastern Turkish province of Hakkari on Sunday.
The victim, a driver, was killed on spot when the suspected PKK bomb blew his vehicle up in Semdinli district, the province's governor said in a press statement.
The Turkish security and military agencies have been conducting a broad crackdown campaign against the party, listed as a terrorist group by Turkey, the US and EU, in Turkey and inside two neighboring countries: Iraq and Syria since the resumption of the decades-long Turkish-PKK conflict on 24 July, 2015.
Since then, over 4,550 people were killed and thousands others injured in clashes or terror attacks, according to the International Crisis Group (ICG). (end)
