ANKARA, -- The Turkish army has killed so far about 3,765 members of Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) inside and outside Turkey since last July, said Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.

About 604 PKK members were injured during military operations, while about 596 others surrendered to the Turkish authority, the agency added, citing some national security reports. Roughly 3,661 members have been detained since July 24, it said.

Death toll of Turkey's army and police has risen to 406 since July 7, it further noted.

The Turkish forces and PKK members have been renewing fighting since last July, after the collapse of the ceasefire deal, which lasted three years before the suicide explosion that hit Suruc and killed about 34 Kurdish activists.
