Two more PKK terrorists surrendered to security forces in Turkey as a result of persuasion efforts by gendarmerie and police forces, the country’s Interior Ministry said on Wednesday.
In a statement, the ministry said one the terrorists joined the PKK in 2010, while the other one joined the terror group in 2014. They both were active in Iraq.
The number of terrorists who surrendered through persuasion this year has reached 3, the statement noted.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
