Ankara police operations lead to the arrest of 20 suspects
In Ankara, police have arrested 20 foreign nationals on suspicion of being in contact with members of armed terrorist organizations PKK/KCK/PYD/YPG. The operation was carried out based on intelligence reports that suggested the suspects were involved with the terrorist groups.
The police have not revealed the nationalities of those arrested, but it is believed they were from different countries. The suspects were arrested in a special operation on the evening of May 23.
The investigation is ongoing, and the authorities have stated that they will provide further details as soon as possible. The suspects are expected to be questioned about their alleged involvement with the terrorist organizations and may face charges if found guilty.
The PKK/KCK/PYD/YPG are considered terrorist organizations by Turkey, the US, and the EU. These groups have carried out numerous attacks against Turkish security forces and civilians in recent years.
The Turkish government has been actively fighting against the PKK/KCK/PYD/YPG, conducting operations against the groups both within Turkey and in Syria. The authorities have vowed to continue their efforts to eliminate the threat posed by these organizations.
The arrests in Ankara are the latest in a series of operations against suspected terrorists in Turkey. The country has been on high alert for several years due to the ongoing threat of terrorism. The Turkish security forces have been praised for their efforts to combat terrorism, but more needs to be done to ensure the safety of citizens both within Turkey and around the world.
