Turkish soldiers near a checkpoint in Amed’s Silvan town come under heavy direct machine gun fire from the Kurdish PKK. The machine gunners hold off on their ambush until the exact second the troops are grouped up. Once the troops cluster up, the PKK slams them hard in an attempt at trapping them inside of their beaten zone.
In response to the hasty ambush, the Turkish soldiers retreat behind the cover of their checkpoint. This is where the video ends. It is unclear if any of the Turkish troops were killed or injured, but it is being reported on Twitter that five of the were taken to a nearby hospital.
