According to reports, 14 PKK fighters have been already killed in southeast Turkey.

The airstrikes come a day after the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) declared a “state of inactivity,” promising to halt all attacks ahead of Turkey’s elections in November.

We remember, at least 30 people were killed and 126 injured in two blasts at the pro-Kurdish rally in the Turkish capital, yesterday.
