Ten people killed and eight wounded due to the explosion of a military bus in the south-east of Turkey, Hürriyet Daily News reports.

The explosion occurred on September 26 at the busy road between the towns of Derik and Kızıltepe, a region inhabited mostly by the Kurds.

Ankara accused the prohibited in Turkey terrorist group "Kurdistan Workers' Party" (PKK) of committing the terrorist attack. The group has previously taken responsibility for such attacks.

September 26, the Turkish Air Force carried out air strikes on terrorist targets in the Qandil district in the northern Iraq. According to the Turkish General Staff, the terrorists’ underground shelter and ammunition depots were destroyed. Following the successful completion of the operation the planes returned in their home base areas.

Since the Turkish Air Force launched strikes on PKK camps in northern Iraq, militants of the party almost daily commit attacks.
