Maroon Berets, the special operation team of the Turkish military, have been deployed to Turkey’s southeastern province of Hakkari on Tuesday to fight against the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) terrorists.
Reports said that the Special Forces units, known as “Bordo Bereliler” in Turkish, were deployed on Gerdan Tepe of Yeşilova village close to the Iraq border in Şemdinli District.
The move came after a group of PKK terrorists opened fire on vehicles working for road construction in the area.
Meanwhile, combat helicopters hit some pre-determined points used by PKK terrorists.
It was unclear the whether the special forces engage direct action against the PKK so far.
The operation was part of an ongoing mega operation against the PKK in Hakkari, that killed more than 300 terrorists in recent weeks.
