Three Turkish soldiers killed in Kurdistan Region: defense ministry
Three Turkish soldiers were killed during clashes with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the Kurdistan Region, the defense ministry said on Tuesday, May 24.

In a statement, Turkey’s ministry of defense said the soldiers were killed during Operation Claw-Lock against the PKK in the Kurdistan Region.
Four other soldiers were wounded during the operation, it added.
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.
