Turkey: 9 arrested over suspected links to PKK/KCK
Operation in Aegean Izmir province seizes digital materials, documents related to terror group
Nine suspects have been arrested Thursday in Turkey's Aegean region as part of an operation against the PKK/KCK terror group, according to a security source.
Local anti-terror police raided addresses previously spotted in Izmir, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
A number of digital materials and documents related to the terror group were also seized during the operation, the source added.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
