Syria detains hundreds in anti-PKK operation

Syria has detained 400 people in operations against PKK militants.

Syrian security forces have staged operations against the PKK in Aleppo, Kamishli, Afrin, Al Hasaka and Al Raqqa cities, and detained 400 people on charges of being a member of the terrorist organization.

The detainees are also interrogated on charges of collecting unjust money, attempting to divide Syria and establish a separate state, and dissolve Kurds living in Syria ethnically and religiously.

Also, Syria decided to implement harsh sanctions against families of Kurdish descend who provide logistical support to the PKK. Syrian authorities have said that they would get back the rights of such people who were given the right to use Syrian territories.

Eleven PKK militants were killed in clashes between security forces and PKK militants in various Syrian cities last week.

Syrian President Bashar al-Asad, who visited Turkey some time ago, had said "acts of the terrorist organization were unacceptable, Turkish and Syrian security forces were cooperating against terrorism."
