A total of 15 terrorists have surrendered since the beginning of this year with the help of their families, the Interior Ministry said Saturday. Turkish security forces recently persuaded three more YPG/PKK terrorists to surrender.
"The disintegration of the terrorist organization continues," the ministry said in a statement, indicating that three more terrorists surrendered at the Habur border gate to Iraq in Turkey's Şırnak's province.
Although security forces have embarked on various simultaneous counterterrorism operations targeting the terrorist group both within and outside the country, priority has since been given to convincing members of the terrorist group to surrender by reaching out to their families. Using the families as mediators in communication with the terrorists is a method that has proved effective.
