Turkey police arrests dozens in operation against ‘urban’ PKK
Turkish security forces have launched an operation aimed at the “urban structure” of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and have so far detained more than 22 people, the state-run Anadolu agency reported on October 6.

The operation, centered in the capital city of Ankara, was launched through simultaneous raids in six separate provinces, the agency said.

Anadolu, however, noted that teachers, public servants and university students are among the 22 who have been taken into custody.

Earlier, privately owned Etkin News Agency (ETHA) reported that there are six executives of the Kurdish problem-focused Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) among these detainees.

The raids come days after at least 44 suspects, including local executives of the HDP, were detained in a pre-dawn “anti-terror” police operation in Istanbul on October 2. Istanbul Police Department Counterterrorism Unit officers raided more than 60 separate locations, supported by police helicopters, around 5 a.m. across the city’s 28 districts.
