At least six PKK terrorists were killed in two separate incidents in Turkey's eastern provinces on Wednesday, according to local officials.

Bitlis Governor Ahmet Cinar told that four PKK terrorists were killed in an airstrike in the Tatvan district of the eastern province.

Cinar said that two PKK shelters and two handmade explosives were also destroyed in the airstrike.

A curfew has also been imposed in the villages of Kusluca, Ucevler, Cavuslar, Anadere and Odabasi of the Tatvan district for the security of residents, he added.

In a separate incident, two other PKK terrorists were killed by drones in the eastern province of Agri, according to a statement by the governorship.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year.

Since then, more than 700 security force members have been martyred and around 8,000 PKK terrorists killed or apprehended.
