PKK terrorists set fire on two trucks

PKK terrorists set fire on two trucks belonging to a private company on Wednesday in Turkey’s southeastern province of Sirnak.

The terror attack caused the flames to spread into the woods around the road between the Idil and Midyat regions.

When they arrived to the scene, the fire squads extinguished the fire in a short time. The security forces launched a wide scale operation to capture the PKK terrorists.

Meanwhile, security forces detained a total number of 8 terrorists during anti-terror operations across the country on Thursday.

Police detained 7 people who were suspected of being members of the terrorist organisation in the southern province of Antalya.

During another operation, Ankara police units detained one PKK suspect and seized several documents related to the outlawed group during a search of his home.
