Terrorists arrested when they were trying to enter Turkey from Syria
Turkish security forces arrested two YPG/PKK terrorists while they were trying to enter Turkey from Syria, a security source said on Monday.
According to the source, the terrorists -- coming from Ayn Al-Arab district of Syria -- were arrested by the Turkish gendarmerie forces in southeastern Sanliurfa province when they were trying to cross the border.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the European Union -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
