SULAIMANI (ESTA) — Two Turkish specialist sergeants were killed during an operation against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Kurdistan Region, Turkey’s defense ministry said on Sunday.

In a statement, the Turkish defense ministry said the two sergeants were killed in clashes with the PKK fighters during Operation Claw-Lock on Sunday.

In April, Turkey launched a new ground and air campaign in the Kurdistan Region, targeting PKK positions.

Dubbed Operation Claw-Lock, Ankara says the offensive is a measure to prevent the PKK from using Iraq as a base to carry out attacks in Turkey.
