SUBJECT: TURKEY: REPORT ON PKK VIOLENCE

REF: ANKARA 3948 AND PREVIOUS

1. (SBU) This is another in a series of periodic reports on
PKK violence in Turkey (see reftels). Our primary sources
for these reports are mainstream Turkish press services, such
as the Anatolian News Agency, and international wire
services. While these sources are more reliable than most
Turkish press sources, they are not necessarily
unimpeachable. Press servics sympathetic to the PKK, such as
Neu-Isenburg People's Defense Forces and Firat News Agency,
tend to report higher numbers of Turkish Security Forces
casualties.

2. (U) According to press reports, one member of the Turkish
Security Forces was killed over the period July 3 - July 9.
One civilian was killed and one civilian was wounded in
separate terrorist incidents. One PKK terrorist was killed
during a clash with Turkish forces during te same period.
