Two more members of the PKK terrorist organization surrendered to the Turkish security forces, the republic’s Interior Ministry reported on Thursday.
It was established that the fighters who fled from the ranks of the RKK joined the group in 2015. Until recently, they operated on the territory of Turkey and Iraq.
One of those who surrendered was on the so-called “gray list” of wanted terrorists of the Turkish Interior Ministry.
It is noted that they laid down their arms as a result of the explanatory work of law enforcement agencies.
Thus, the number of members of the terrorist organization RKK, who voluntarily laid down and surrendered to the authorities this year, has reached 180 people.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that from 1984, when PKK militants first committed a bloody crime in Turkey until March 2020, 7,500 Turkish security forces and 6,800 civilians were killed at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union have listed PKK as a terrorist organization.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to resolve the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
In recent years, PKK has sought to shift responsibility for the bloody crimes in the region onto its offshoots.
In Syria, PKK terrorists hide behind the names PYD and YPG, and in the past two years have called themselves the “Syrian Democratic Forces.”
