2 Quaratine Aid Workers in Turkey Shot Dead

ANKARA – Turkish officials says Kurdish rebels have opened fire and killed two municipal workers distributing aid in an area under quarantine because of the pandemic. One other person was injured.

The attack occurred Thursday on a road near the district of Ozalp, in Van province, which borders Iran, the local governor’s office said in a statement. The group was attacked with long-barreled weapons from a vehicle. The municipal employees were riding inside another vehicle after handing out aid packages.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The Van governor’s office said it has begun looking for the assailants.

Presidential communications director Fahrettin Altun said the attack was the work of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party, which has waged a more than three-decade old insurgency in southeast Turkey. The conflict has led to the loss of tens of thousands lives since it started in 1984.
