Turkey: YPG/PKK terrorist surrenders to security forces


MERSIN, Turkey 

A YPG/PKK terrorist surrendered to Turkish security forces in the southern province of Mersin on Tuesday. 

In a statement, the Gendarmerie General Command said that the terrorist surrendered as a result of the security forces’ persuasion efforts.

The statement added that the terrorist was part of the group since 2015.

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