The number of troops that commit suicide is increasing in the Kurdish provinces where military operations and clashes occur intensely. In Batman, one more soldier ended his life.

Recently, troop deaths, which are explained by TSK as suicides, accidental shootings, or strikes by lightning, are increasing. It is remarkable to see that most of the deadly accidents happen in Kurdish provinces; however, TSK states that such accidental deaths are the result of military operation losses.

In Acar Jandarma station, in Sason, Batman, a soldier shot himself with his own weapon. Jandarma Private Ali Hüseyin Erdil (age 21), who was serving for seven months, committed suicide with his G3 infantry weapon in the Sason Acar Jandarma station. His body was taken to Batman State Hospital by his station commanders for an autopsy. After the autopsy, his corpse was sent to his hometown, Kozan, Adana.

Last month, H.K. (full name not released;from Urfa), who was serving in ?smail Seydi?ehir Barrack supply company in Kayseri's land forces garrison command, shot himself in the head with his weapon while on guard duty.

Before that, in Bitlis, Mutki town, it was alleged that Jandarma private Tolga Kandemir (from Do?ubeyaz?t) was killed by his weapon's accidental discharge.

In Dersim, Private Mutlu Olcer, first was alleged to have died from a traffic accident. Later his death was stated as an accidental weapon discharge.
