DIYARBAKIR, Turkey, March 4, 2016

Latest security reports from Turkey indicate that Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) car bomb and rocket attack left two police killed and scores wounded in the southeastern Turkish province of Mardin on Friday morning, security sources told media reporters.

The attack was carried at around 6.a.m (0400 GMT) by Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants group. The attack took place in the town of Nusaybin near the volatile Syrian border.

Two police officers have been killed by a car bomb attack by Kurdish militants in south-eastern Turkey, officials say.

A ceasefire between Turkey and PKK militant group collapsed last July 2015 and since then Turkey’s security forces has increased offensives against the predominantly Kurdish southeast that has left hundreds of PKK fighters killed.

Turkey has designated PKK as a terrorist group and recently the government has intensified military campaigns against the militant group which Turkey has said PKK is working in collaboration with Syrian Kurdish YPG militia to stage attacks, with the latest attack targeting military buses in Ankara that left 29 people killed.
