Rocket attack in southeast Turkey kills 2 soldiers
A statement from the governor's office for Hakkari province said the attack occurred today as the vehicle was leaving a hilltop base near the town of Cukurca, close to the border with Iraq.
The attack came as Turkey intensified cross-border airstrikes against suspected bases belonging to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, in northern Iraq, including Qandil mountain - where the group's leadership maintains its headquarters.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said of Qandil: "Our aim is to drain the biggest of terrorist swamps."
