The Turkish Armed Forces, or TSK, has warned that the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, is likely to increase terrorist activities in the upcoming period.
“The organization [the PKK] is trying to gain attention. Considering this, we expect an increase in its attacks,” said Maj. Fahri Kır, head of TSK’s the Internal Security Operations Department, referring to the intensifying fight against terror.
Kır said in a press conference Friday that they would do everything necessary to protect the nation despite attacks, and that they would fight until the terrorist organization is stopped.
Kır said the terrorist organization has lost 130 members, in addition to those who have surrendered. The organization lost over a hundred members on May 20 during an air raid in Hakurk, while the June 16 attack in Şırnak resulted in 20 casualties.
