DIYARBAKIR-AMED, Turkey’s Kurdish region,— An explosion ripped through a bus carrying military personnel in Turkey’s mainly Kurdish southeast on Monday, killing at least three Turkish military personnel and wounding eight soldiers, hospital and security sources said.
Suspected Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants detonated an explosive device that had been planted in the road as the army bus, which had civilian license plates, traveled by on a highway, security sources said.
Suspected PKK militants detonated an explosive device that had been planted in the road, security sources said.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the blast that occurred on a busy road linking the towns of Derik and Kiziltepe in Mardin province in Turkish Kurdistan, which borders Syria. The PKK has previously said it was behind similar attacks on police and soldiers.
Since July 2015, Turkey initiated a controversial military campaign against the PKK in the country’s southeastern Kurdish region after Ankara ended a two-year ceasefire agreement. Since the beginning of the campaign, Ankara has imposed several round-the-clock curfews, preventing civilians from fleeing regions where the military operations are being conducted.
Observers say the crackdown has taken a heavy toll on the Kurdish civilian population and accuse Turkey of using collective punishment against the minority.
Activists have accused the security forces of causing huge destruction to urban centres and killing Kurdish civilians. But the government says the operations are essential for public safety, blaming the PKK for the damage.
Pro-Kurdish opposition political parties say about 1,000 civilians, mostly Kurds, have perished in the fighting, since the Turkish offensive against the PKK centred in towns and cities in Turkish Kurdistan.
The PKK took up arms in 1984 against the Turkish state, which still denies the constitutional existence of Kurds, to push for greater autonomy for the Kurdish minority who make up around 22.5 million of the country’s 78-million population. A large Kurdish community in Turkey and worldwide openly sympathise with PKK rebels.
