Security forces were able to persuade a member of the YPG/PKK terrorist group to surrender in southeastern Turkey, a source said Tuesday.

The terrorist surrendered in Suruc district of Sanliurfa province, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

A total of 35 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 European Union -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
