A rocket attack has been carried out on a civil airport in Turkish city of Diyarbakir, Dogan news agency reported.

According to preliminary reports, there were no casualties or injured in the rocket attack, passengers and staff were taken inside a terminal building for safety.

Four rockets were fired at a police checkpoint, according to media reports. The rockets landed on wasteland nearby.

The Governor of Diyarbakir said that no casualties or disruption of flights followed the attack.

Violence in Turkey escalated in mid-2015, when the Turkish government launched a military campaign against the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which is considered to be a terrorist organization by Ankara, in the country's southeast. The situation aggravated further in December, when the Turkish authorities declared a curfew in a number of southeastern regions, including Diyarbakir province.
