Two militants of the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK) were killed in a military operation in southeastern Turkey, the semi-official Anatolia news agency reported on Sunday.

The report said that the military operation in pursuit of the PKK members was conducted in Idil town of Sirnak province bordering Syria and Iraq.

One Turkish village guard was also died from the operation, said the report.

It added that the operation targeting the PKK rebels is continuing in the region.

Turkish army troops have been operating in the border area with Iraq since a deadly attack by the PKK on Turkish soldiers killed 12 and captured eight.

Turkey has also massed up to 100,000 troops along the mountainous border with Iraq in preparations for a cross-border operation targeting the PKK rebels based there in the light of a motion approved by parliament earlier this month

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. More than 30,000 people have been killed in more than two decades of conflict.
