Turkish security forces on Friday arrested a convicted PKK/KCK terrorist in southeastern Turkey
Turkish security forces on Friday arrested a convicted PKK/KCK terrorist in southeastern Turkey, a security source said.
Acting on a tip-off, local gendarmerie teams in the Omerli district of Mardin province, launched an operation to nab the convict, who was sentenced to over three years in prison, said the source on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
The convict, identified only by the initials A.S., was sent to prison.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU — has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people including women, children, and infants.
