VAN, Turkey (AA) - Turkish forces have seized weapons and ammunition belonging to the PKK terror group in the eastern Van province, the local governor's office said Tuesday.

An anti-terror operation was launched in a rural area of the Baskale district to locate stockpiles and hideouts of the terror group.

Two Ak-47 rifles and some 7.62 mm cartridges were confiscated during the operation.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
