PKK score hits against Turkish military

Two Turkish soldiers and three members of a Kurdish militia helping the army were killed on May 29 in separate clashes with Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) guerillas. The violence reportedly surged after imprisoned PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan decided to abandon peace efforts and leave local commanders in charge of the conflict. Two soldiers and a “village guard” member died in clashes in Sirnak province, while two militia members were killed in Siirt province, after PKK members attacked a military patrol.
