In the western Izmir province, 16 suspects were apprehended by security forces on various charges.

Prosecutors said 13 of the suspects were involved in recruiting women to the terror group, while two more were wanted for social media propaganda activities.

One of the arrested suspects was found to be part of the YPG, the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.

Multiple digital materials and documents were seized in the operations.

Four more suspects were apprehended in Tarsus district in the Mediterranean province of Mersin.

Officials said the suspects were planning attacks and multiple digital materials and other devices were found in their possession.

Five more PKK suspects were arrested in simultaneous operations in different districts of the northwestern Balikesir province.
