Baku, July 26, AZERTAC

Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Saturday that the anti-terror operation in the country was not over, according to Anadolu Agency.

“The operations will continue for as long as threats against Turkey continue,” Davutoglu said in a press conference held in Ankara’s Esenboga Airport, before leaving for Istanbul where he is scheduled to meet with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“Those who threaten [Turkey] will face the response,” he added.

Davutoglu’s comments came as Turkey has launched air attacks against Daesh and the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), which listed as a terror organization by the U.S., the EU and Turkey.

On Friday night and in the early hours of Saturday, Turkish air forces bombed for the first time in last two-and-a-half years PKK camps in northern Iraq. Turkey also launched attacks against Daesh.

Separately, Turkish police have detained a total of 590 people, including at least 37 foreigners, suspected of having ties with terrorist groups across Turkey, said the prime minister.
