Terror to lose in Turkey, says deputy PM

World Bulletin / News Desk

All terror groups will be “brought to their knees” in Turkey, Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said Wednesday after two soldiers were martyred in the country’s southeast.

Kurtulmus condemned the terrorist PKK’s morning attack on a security convoy while speaking at the opening ceremony of an academy for mukhtars (neighborhood heads) at Inonu University in eastern Malatya province.

“All terrorist organizations will be brought to their knees,” he said.

“We will render all terrorist organizations no longer able to harm our people in Turkey,” he added.

Earlier on Wednesday, an explosive was detonated by PKK terrorists while a security convoy was passing by on a highway linking the provinces of Mardin and Diyarbakir.

More than 1,200 people, including security force personnel and civilians, have lost their lives since the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, and the European Union -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July 2015.
