July 6 (Reuters) – Kurdish guerrillas killed three Turkish soldiers and wounded three in an attack on a military outpost in southeast Turkey overnight, broadcaster CNN Turk reported on Tuesday.
It said the attack by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) guerrillas occurred in the Semdinli district of Hakkari province, near the border with Iraq.
Officials were not immediately available for comment on the report.
The PKK has stepped up attacks against the military in southeast Turkey after ending a 14-month ceasefire at the start of June.
More than 40,000 people have been killed in a conflict that began in 1984 when the PKK took up arms against the state with the aim of creating a separate Kurdish homeland. (Reporting by Daren Butler)
