font size    

Turkish security forces killed 11 militants of the outlawed Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) in eastern Turkey, semi-official Anatolia news agency reported on Saturday.

The security forces staged a strong operation against the PKK militants in Senyayla rural area of Mus province, killing 11 Kurdish rebels, the report said.

The operation was completed in the region, added the report.

Violence in eastern and southeastern Turkey has flared up since the PKK called off a five-year unilateral ceasefire in June 2004.

At least 37,000 people have been killed since PKK fought against the Turkish government for an independent Kurdish state in the country's southeast in 1984.

The PKK is blacklisted a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.
