Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters prepare to join others near a position which has been hit by Islamic State car bombs in Sinjar, March 11, 2015. Women fighters at a PKK base on Mount Sinjar in northwest Iraq, just like their male counterparts, have to be ready for action at any time. Smoke from the front line, marking their battle against Islamic State, which launched an assault on northern Iraq last summer, is visible from the base. Many of the women have cut links with their families back home; the fighters come from all corners of the Kurdish region. REUTERS/Asmaa Waguih

Adana police forces conducted dawn raids operations against the homes of the PKK suspects.

Three pump rifles, weapons and documents belonging to the PKK organization were discovered and confiscated by the police.

Founded in 1978, the PKK has waged a decades-long bloody campaign against the Turkish state.

The PKK is officially designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.

Throughout Turkey’s counterterrorism operations, over 10,000 PKK terrorists have either been killed or detained since the group resumed its attacks in 2015. Enditem
