ISTANBUL 

Five PKK terrorists surrendered to security forces in southeastern Turkey, according to the National Defense Ministry on Monday.

In a Twitter post, the ministry said: “4 PKK terrorists, who escaped from the [PKK’s] shelter areas in northern Iraq and Syria, have surrendered to our border post in Silopi [district of Sirnak province], and 1 PKK/YPG terrorist to our border post in Kiziltepe [district of Mardin province].”

The dissolution of the PKK have been continuing, according to the tweet.

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 nearly 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
