Ten Turkish soldiers killed in PKK Attack




Ten Turkish soldiers have been killed in an attack by Kurdish terrorists near the Iraqi border, Turkey's military says.

Members of the PKK terrorist group launched an overnight raid on an outpost near the city of Semdinli in Hakkari province, officials said.
Twelve rebels were killed in subsequent clashes, they added. Turkish aircraft have also bombed PKK positions in Iraq.

Fighting has increased drastically in recent months, as the government's peace initiative has collapsed.

The Turkish General Staff said in a statement that a group of terrorists had touched off the fighting by attacking a division on duty near the border at 0200 on Saturday (2300 GMT on Friday).

"Reinforcements were sent to the region and throughout the night support was provided to the conflict zone by attack helicopters and artillery. Separately, the air force struck targets identified in the northern region of Iraq."

"According to initial findings, 12 terrorists were neutralised in the clashes."
Ankara has urged Iraq's Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) to expel the 2,000 PKK fighters believed to be based on its territory, saying it must promote efforts to curb the banned group's activities.

The military announced on Friday that more than 130 terrorists had been killed in air raids and incursions in northern Iraq since the beginning of May. It added that 43 members of the Turkish security forces had also died.

On Wednesday, Turkish troops crossed into northern Iraq and killed four PKK fighters after the group made an unsuccessful attack on a border guard outpost.

Friday's attack was the deadliest for the Turkish military since April 2009, when nine soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb in Diyarbakir.

Last month, the imprisoned PKK leader, Abdullah Ocalan, stated that he had given up any hope of dialogue with the government.

Nationalist sentiment runs high in Turkey and is very hostile to the idea of negotiating with the PKK, which is officially branded a terrorist organisation by the United States and European Union, he adds.

All soldiers are heros. May those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country rest in peace. Avenge them well.

I expect that the PKK terrorists consider themselves soldiers too, willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. So the avenging will go on endlessly. When will all parties involved try to come to a solution?

I don't hate Turks. I just love Armenians.

My wife is Armenian, actually. Her father is a Karabakh veteran too, took Shusha. And I really don't like when someone insults or threatens her and her people. Nothing personal, just how it is. Armenia, Ossetia, Abkhazia, Kuban, Terek, I have deep personal roots and connections to these places. These are my places. My people.

But I gladly support Turkey against Kurdish terrorists. Or Zionist regime.

I have respect to whom you love and also I have respect to Armenians living in Armenia. But I have no positive thoughts about the ones living in Europe - working for diaspora and trying corrupt the relations between Armenia and Turkey.

The word "bastard" you used in another thread for Turks made me think that you hate them.

I feel that the recent rise in Pkk attacks is due to Turkey supporting the Palestinian struggle so Israel is getting back at Turkey by supporting the Kurdish struggle... Their have been few articles written recently that I tend to agree with, I see an Israeli hand behind the recent confligration of tensions... The PKK recently has been in peace deals with the Turkish government an have toned down their antagonism due to the Turkish concesstions made... But what better way at getting back at Turkey for supporting the Palestinian cause than for Israel to goad the PKK into new and more ferocious attacks against the Turkish state in order to cause Turkey to tone down the recent pressure it has put against Israel.

WATCH THIS VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sX4XPNlEqE

Here is another link also: http://www.upi.com/Top_News/Special/...6741276717399/

The youtube video proves Israeli connections to the Kurdish militias and the "coincidental" rise of PKK attacks against Turkey since the Humanitarian flotilla debacle and Turkish pressure against Israel only proves that Israel which has had connections with the Kurds has accelerated in using the Kurds to launch a campaign against Turkey by proxy to pressure Turkey.

That's what the Turks deserve for being hypocritical.
