At least seven blasts within 10 minutes have been reported in a suburb of Diyarbakır, the largest city in the Kurdish southeast of Turkey, which has been a scene of long security operation launched by Ankara against PKK fighters.

The explosions rocked the Sur district of the city, DIHA, a pro-Kurdish news agency, reports adding that about 200 civilians have been caught in the bombing. It is unclear what happened to the civilians and whether there are any dead or injured.

Diyarbakır, one of the largest cities in southeastern Turkey, is considered an unofficial capital of the Turkish Kurds. The city has seen a number of clashes since Ankara launched a security operation there in recent months. Security troops are enforcing a curfew in the city and other large settlements in the southeast.
