The Siirt raid was an armed raid of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) on a Turkish military base in Eruh, Siirt province, Turkey, on 29 March 2018.[3] The raid killed six village guard militia that was supporting the Turkish army in the area.[4][2][5] Seven soldiers were injured, one of whom, Sergeant Emre Dut, later died of his wounds. The PKK had no casualties.[1][2][6] After the attack, Turkish forces launched an operation, killing three PKK militants they claimed were responsible for the raid.[2]
