The Turkish security forces neutralized four militants of the Red Army terrorist organization in the province of Diyarbakyr in the southeast of the country. This was announced on Monday by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Turkey Ali Yerlika in the social network X (previously Twitter).
According to him, three of the liquidated members of the group are listed in Red, Orange and Gray Categories of the list of wanted terrorists of the Turkish Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Among the destroyed terrorists – Khulia Demirer under the code call sign “Aksin Mush”, Jihat Ai (code call sign “Rohat Pasur”) and Chetin Temel with the code call sign “Demhat”.
According to the head of the department, law enforcement officers found that four militants of the RSC are hidden in a wooded area in the Kulp area.
The Minister said that during the special operation, the ATAK shock helicopter, as well as the EGM and J-Si̇ha BPL, were involved.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that since 1984, when the militants of the RSC for the first time had carried out a bloody crime in Turkey, and until March 2020, 7,500 security forces of Turkey and 6,800 civilians were killed at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union introduced PKK to the lists of terrorist organizations.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to settle the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
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).
