ANKARA (AA) - Seven more PKK terrorists have surrendered to Turkish security forces, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Monday.
As a result of Turkey's determined anti-terror operations, the terrorists have turned themselves in to security forces in the southeastern Sirnak province, escaping the terror group's camps in Northern Iraq, the ministry said in a tweet.
Also, two more PKK terrorists, including a female member of the terror group, surrendered to a border police station in Nusaybin, in Turkey's southeastern Mardin province, the ministry said in a statement.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
