On Saturday, Turkish security forces seized three people, involving one YPG/PKK terrorist. They aimed to enter Turkey through unlawful methods, the National Defense Ministry announced.
“Three people who were trying to enter our country illegally from Syria were caught on the Mardin/Kiziltepe border … It was determined that 1 of the persons caught was a member of the YPG/PKK terrorist organization,” the Defense Ministry tweeted.
In its more than three-decade campaign of terror against Turkey, the PKK was listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the European Union, and has been held accountable for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian branch.
