Turkish forces kill 32 PKK terrorists this past week


Turkish security forces killed 32 PKK terrorists during the ongoing counterterrorism operations in the past week, according to a Turkish General Staff statement late Friday, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

 

Between Dec. 15-21, dozens of improvised explosives and weapons used by terrorist organizations were seized, and over 100 shelters, caves or depots were destroyed, the statement said.

 

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and the EU. In its over three-decade-long terror campaign against Turkey, more than 40,000 people have been killed.

 

Since the group resumed its armed campaign in July 2015, more than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives.
