 50 with suspected ties to the Daesh terrorist organization, and 474 with suspected ties to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ)/ Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK)-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) were taken into custody. Moreover, five affiliated with leftist terror organizations were apprehended by the authorities.In operations carried out, 3,252 people were detained in total, 1,395 for terror crimes (866 from PKK/KCK, 50 from Daesh, 474 from FETÖ/PYD, and five from leftist terror organizations), 1,857 for cybercrimes, planned peace, drugs and smuggling operations.

344 people were also detained in the operation targeting drug traffickers. Turkish security forces detained 72 suspects for the propaganda of separatist terror organizations such as FETÖ/PYD, PKK/TAK and Daesh which includes praising these organizations, declaring their links with these organizations publicly, promoting hatred and hostility, insulting statesmen and security forces, threatening the indivisible integrity of the state and the public’s welfare on social media accounts.


The operations also led to the seizure of 42 weapons, 306 kg of explosive materials, hand grenades, explosive vests, and 19,000 ammunition rounds while 17 improvised explosives and mines were defused and 27 PKK shelters were destroyed in southeastern Turkey, Anadolu Agency reports.

The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the European Union and the United States. The PKK has been conducting armed violence in the southeastern part of Turkey since 1984. More than 40,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in the three-decade long conflict.
