The military operation in pursuit of the PKK rebels was conducted by Turkish forces, in which one Turkish village guard was also killed, according to Anatolia news agency.

Turkish army troops have been operating at the Turkish-Iraqi border since the PKK’s deadly attack on Turkey.

Raids by the rebels have left 47 people -including 35 soldiers- dead on the Turkish side, since September 29.

The PKK, listed by the United States and Turkey as a terrorist group, took up arms against Turkey in 1984, seeking to create an ethnic homeland in the southeast part of the country.
