Terrorists turn themselves in along Syria border, regional governor says
Three PYD/PKK terrorists have surrendered to authorities in southeastern Turkey, according to a regional governor on Tuesday.
A terrorist on Monday turned himself in after reportedly fleeing a PYD/PKK terror camp along the border with Syria, the Mardin Governor’s Office said in a statement.
Two other PYD/PKK terrorists surrendered in Nusaybin district on April 4 and Sunday, the office said in another statement on Tuesday.
The PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years and has been responsible for the death of nearly 40,000 people.
More than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children, have been killed since July 2015 alone when the group resumed its armed campaign against the country.
