The Anadolu Agency on Monday says that the clash occurred near the town of Semdinli in Hakkari province, bordering Iran and Iraq, yesterday. The agency did not give a casualty figure for the rebels.

Kurdish rebels are fighting for autonomy in Turkey`s southeast. The conflict has killed tens of thousands of people since the rebels launched their first armed attack on August 15, 1984.
