A video released by the HPG militant arm of the Kurdish separatist PKK shows a brutal close ambush on a Turkish military vehicle that appears to show the death of three Turkish soldiers.
The video is recorded from a camcorder sitting back from the action as well as a body-worn action camera. The insurgents can be seen operating both inside and outside of the base’s outer perimeter of concertina wire.
The militants attack the military transport truck with small arms and rocket propelled grenades. The vehicle is immediately disabled, and as the insurgents approach, it appears the soldiers were killed as they attempted to dismount and escape from the passenger side of the vehicle.
The cameraman fires wildly with friendlies standing near to his target as well as on the other side. Luckily for his buddies, they are not hit.
