Alleged members of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), were arrested by Turkish border guards as they tried to cross into Greece illegally from Evros, likely to seek asylum.
A post by the Turkish Ministry of Defense on Twitter states that:
“Our Border Eagles, working in Adrianoupolis (Ἁδριανούπολις, Turkish: Edirne), Kypsela (Κύψελα, Turkish: İpsala) and Evros (Έβρος, Turkish: Meriç) districts, caught two people trying to cross illegally from our country to Greece.
“In the examination, it was determined that the arrested persons were members of the PKK terrorist organization.”
Edirne'nin İpsala ve Meriç ilçesinde görev yapan Hudut Kartallarımız, ülkemizden Yunanistan’a yasa dışı yollarla geçmeye çalışan 2 kişiyi yakaladı. Yapılan incelemede, yakalanan şahısların PKK terör örgütü mensubu olduğu belirlendi.#MSB #TSK pic.twitter.com/QTFSLyNInC
