Two high-ranking members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) have been detained in Istanbul, police sources said.
Security forces from the Intelligence and Anti-Terror Directorate had launched an operation July 31, detaining three suspects. The suspects include one identified only as S.Ç, who is accused of organizing PKK activities in Istanbul.
Following this operation, five more suspects were nabbed in Istanbul on Aug. 4, including one who is accused of having a leading role in PKK's recruitment and logistics efforts linking its activities in Istanbul and Diyarbakır.
An Istanbul court arrested four key suspects, while releasing the four others.
