ANKARA (AA) – Turkish security forces on Wednesday retrieved the body of a terrorist killed by artillery days earlier in the southeastern Hakkari province.
The terrorist, slain on Jan. 19 by security forces, was found dead in a rural area of Hakkari’s Semdinli district, according to the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) official website.
Separately, in Dargecit, in the southeastern Mardin province, four pieces of rocket launcher ammunition were seized, along with a walkie-talkie, 20 gun cartridges, one laser distance meter, and various other military materiel.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and EU. In its over three-decade-long terror campaign against Turkey, over 40,000 people have been killed.
