At least 10 PKK terrorists were killed Tuesday as part of the ongoing anti-terror operations in eastern and southeastern Turkey, local authorities said, Anadolu reported.

The operations were conducted in Genc district of eastern Bingol province, and Lice district of southeastern Diyarbakir province, Diyarbakir Governor's office said.

Among the terrorists killed was Edip Yetut, code-named as Erhan Siser, who was wanted by the security forces, the office said.

Hand grenades, rifles, machine guns, pistol cartridges, and organizational documents were seized in the operation, it added. The security forces also seized 1,386 kilograms of marijuana.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
