VAN, Turkey 

Two PKK terror suspects were arrested in eastern Turkey on Thursday, authorities said.

The suspects were nabbed by gendarmerie teams in the Tusba district of the eastern Van province, according to a statement by the provincial governor’s office.

Anti-terror operations continue to ensure security and peace for all citizens of the province, the statement added.

In its more than 35-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 at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
