Turkey's state-run news agency says 13 soldiers have been wounded by a bomb attack in the eastern province of Van.

The Anadolu Agency reported Tuesday that the improvised bomb was remotely detonated by rebels from the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, as a military convoy was driving down the highway late Monday.

The attack follows airstrikes which the Turkish military says killed five Kurdish rebels in the neighboring province of Hakkari.

Violence between the PKK and Turkey's military reignited this summer after the collapse of peace talks between the two sides.
