ANKARA 

Turkish police arrested on Thursday 18 people for their alleged links to the PKK/KCK terrorist group.

They were rounded up after prosecutors in Ankara issued arrest warrants for 21 people for “conducting terrorist propaganda and cyberattacks for the PKK/KCK terrorist organization.”

Eighteen suspects got arrested after simultaneous operations were launched in 17 provinces. Search for the remaining is underway.

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 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
