5 PKK terrorists surrender to Turkish security forces

At least five PKK terrorists, two of them women, surrendered to Turkish security forces in the southeastern Şırnak province on Wednesday, according to a security source.

The terrorists fled PKK camps in northern Iraq and surrendered at the Habur border gate in the Silopi district, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women and children.
