Turkish Interior: A PKK terrorist surrenders to the security forces


The Turkish Interior Ministry announced that a PKK terrorist turned himself in to the security forces after fleeing the organization as a result of persuasion efforts.


The Interior Ministry said in a statement on Sunday that the terrorist, who surrendered, joined the organization in 2015 and was active in Iraq and Syria.

She noted that the number of terrorists who surrendered themselves thanks to the persuasion efforts carried out by the concerned teams has reached 87 since the beginning of this year.

She indicated that the terrorist’s family joined the sit-in in front of the HDP headquarters in Diyarbakir on November 21, 2019.

Since September 3, 2019, families have continued their sit-in in front of the party’s headquarters, accusing it of helping the terrorist organization kidnap children and young people to the mountains and deceive them to fight in its ranks against Turkey.


In turn, Turkish Interior Minister Suleiman Soylu explained in a blog post on social media that this reunion is the 38th since the start of the sit-in.
