Three Turkish soldiers were wounded in an attack on their military vehicle near the southern resort town of Antalya, Dogan news agency reported.

The attack occurred in the Beldibi region west of Anyalya, where some of Turkey's most popular coastal resorts are located, reported the agency. It is not known who is responsible for the attack.

Antalya has seen its worst-ever tourism season this year, with visitor numbers dropping by more than one million following a series of terror attacks and diplomatic tensions with Russia. The resort was once the world's third most-popular.

Kurdish separate militant groups have launched a series of attacks against Turkish military targets this year, with 28 killed in an attack on a military convoy in capital Ankara in February.

Turkey also faces a threat from Islamic terrorist group Isis, with authorities claiming the group was responsible for a suicide bombing in Gazientep on Sunday that killed more than 50.

Turkish tanks crossed the border into northern Syria early Wednesday in a bid to wrest the city of Jarablus from Isis control.
