Turkey’s conflict with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) has escalated rapidly in the past few months, with some of the heaviest fighting in three decades.
It is a remarkable deterioration from a point where unprecedented talks were proceeding less than two years ago.
In a recently published report, the think-tank International Crisis Group said more than 700 people had died in the past 14 months, the highest casualty rate in 13 years.
