Also, two vehicles belonging to the president of a Turkish association that operates under the French law in the fields of women's rights, arts, culture and education also came under arson attacks on Sunday, the statement added.
"We condemn these acts of terrorism, in which members of the terrorist organization are publicly involved and blatantly sharing some of their video images."
The statement also said 352 Turkish-French friendship foundations on March 2 had signed a request to French authorities to take security measures against the illegal activities of the PKK terrorist organization, to identify the PKK members committing crimes and bring them to justice.
