#AceNewsReport – TURKEY:Aug.03: The outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) on Monday said one of its guerrillas carried out a deadly suicide bombing against troops in eastern Turkey.
Two soldiers were killed and 31 were wounded in the bombing early Sunday in the Dogubayazit district of Agri province, AFP reported, citing the military. The PKK said the attack was carried out by a “martyr,” Andok Eris, whose age was not given. The bomber drove up to the local military headquarters building in a tractor laden with two tons of explosives.
The strike was reportedly the first time the PKK has employed a suicide bombing during the current phase of the conflict.
