HAKKARI, Turkey

Two employees working for a water and sewerage company in southeastern province of Hakkari were injured in an attack by PKK terrorists, security sources said Thursday.

The PKK terror group attacked the workers with long-barreled weapons and rockets, said sources on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

The injured were taken to the city center by helicopter and treated at the state hospital.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
