Two YPG/PKK terrorists surrendered to Turkish security forces in southeastern Turkey, according to the country’s National Defense Ministry on Sunday.   

In a statement, the ministry said that the terrorists fleeing the terror group’s shelter areas in Syria came to a border post in border province of Sanliurfa’s Suruc district. 

It added that escapes from the terrorist organization is ongoing. 

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
