NATO will on Tuesday hold an emergency meeting on Turkey's security after the country began military operations against the Islamic state (IS) and the PKK.

It is Turkey that has requested the meeting under NATO's Article four. The article says that Member States may request a meeting if they consider their security, political independence or territorial integrity are threatened.

- I expect no decision at Tuesday's meeting of any concrete new contributions. NATO is already helping with that we have Patriot missile systems deployed on the border with Syria, said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

NATO ambassadors from the alliance's 28 member countries must go to Brussels on Tuesday, but the meeting involves only consultations and no guarantees of action by the alliance.

- The main purpose of the meeting Tuesday is that Turkey can clarify the situation, says Stoltenberg.

The message about the NATO meeting comes after two Turkish soldiers were killed and four wounded when a car bomb went off near the Turkish city of Diyarbakir late Saturday night.

Turkish military says militants Kurds are responsible for the attack. The bomb went off the same day as the Kurdistan Worker's Party, PKK militants, stated that the ceasefire with Ankara no longer has any meaning. The reason is the Turkish air raids against PKK in northern Iraq Friday night and early Saturday, where PKK claims three people were killed.

- The ceasefire appears to be over, says Mideast expert David Romano, to AFP.
