During raids against the terrorist PKK, equipment and guns also seized

A total of 740 terrorist PKK suspects were detained in last three days in 36 simultaneous operations, a source from Turkey's Interior Ministry said Saturday.

The operations led by law enforcement officials aimed to prevent possible attacks by the terrorist group and uncover their relations and communications techniques, said a ministry official who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

During a search of the addresses of the suspects, equipment and documents of the terror group were seized, along with one Kalashnikov, four unlicensed guns, 14 shotguns, and 246 fireworks.

In previous operations against the PKK/KCK on Feb. 8-15, 259 suspects were detained, and 39 were remanded in custody.
