In a statement issued late Tuesday, Turkish General Staff said a tank was also slightly damaged in the rocket attack.

The wounded soldiers were immediately rushed to a hospital, the statement said.

Meanwhile, Turkish jets carried out an air operation in Cukurca district of southeastern Hakkari province on late Tuesday. Ten targets of the PKK terrorist organization were successfully destroyed, the statement added.

In a separate operation, Turkish jets hit terrorist targets in Kulliyah region of Syrian city of Jarabulus, Turkish army added. 

Last week, Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield, which is aimed at improving security, supporting coalition forces and eliminating the terror threat along Turkey’s border through Free Syrian Army fighters backed by Turkish armor, artillery and jets.

The PKK -- also listed as a terrorist organization by the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its 30-year armed campaign against the Turkish state in July 2015.

Since then, more than 600 security personnel, including troops, police officers and village guards, have been martyred and over 7,000 PKK terrorists killed or “neutralized” in operations across Turkey and northern Iraq.
