The Ministry of National Defense of Turkey reported on Tuesday about the voluntary surrender of the militant of the Syrian wing of the PKK – YPG terrorist organization in the north of Syria.
Turkey’s Ministry of Defense noted that the discord in the ranks of the terrorist organization accelerated thanks to successful operations of the Turkish army.
According to the agency, the terrorist PKK/YPG voluntarily folded the weapon and surrendered to the fighters of the Turkish special forces in the zone of the Operation Source.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan previously stated that since 1984, when the militants of the RSC for the first time carried out a terrorist attack in Turkey, thousands of employees of Turkish security forces, military and civilians died at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union introduced PKK to the lists of terrorist organizations.
In recent years, PKK seeks to shift responsibility for bloody crimes in the region to its branches.
In Syria, PKK terrorists are covered by the names Pyd and YPG, and in the last two years they call themselves “Syrian democratic forces.”
In Iran, PKK acts as “Party of Free Life of Kurdistan” (pjak)
