Turkish security forces repelled harassment fire by PKK/YPG terrorists in the eastern border province of Igdir, security sources said on Tuesday.

Terrorists opened fire at the Kurtomer border post along the Turkish-Iranian frontier through long-barreled firearms, said the sources, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

Turkish soldiers immediately responded to the attack, and after exchanging fire launched an operation to hunt down the fleeing terrorists, the sources added.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including many women and children.

The YPG/PYD is its Syrian branch.
