Turkey: Terrorist neutralized on wanted list

Baku, September 27, AZERTAC

Turkey said Friday that a PK terrorist neutralized in mid-September was identified to be on the nation’s wanted list, according to Anadolu Agency.

On September 14, the local gendarmerie forces neutralized five PKK terrorists in the eastern Van province.

Among them were Bayram Baskala, code-named Artos, who was inscribed on the wanted terrorists list of the Interior Ministry.

Baskala had been sought with a bounty of 300,000 Turkish liras ($52,800) on his head, according to the ministry.

In a written statement, the ministry also said Baskala was responsible for many terror attacks, including the one in 2016, which martyred a gendarmerie staff and two security guards in Van.
