GAZIANTEP, Turkey

At least six suspects allegedly linked to the PKK/KCK terror group have been arrested in southeastern Turkey’s Gaziantep province, security sources said Friday. 

Gaziantep prosecutors issued arrest warrants for the suspects accused of participating in the terror group’s activities and making propaganda on social media, said a source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

The suspects were arrested following simultaneous operations conducted in the province and were then referred to police headquarters for interrogation.

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.
