Turkish security forces were able to persuade three more YPG/PKK terrorists to surrender, the Interior Ministry said Saturday.

The terrorists surrendered at Turkey's southeastern Habur border gate with Iraq.

A total of 15 terrorists have surrendered since the beginning of this year with support from their families.

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.
