Turkish security forces arrested 450 PKK/YPG suspects in 37 provinces across the country.
The ministry said police detained 450 suspects over the last five days in anti-terror operations across 37 provinces.
During the operations, police seized equipment and documents at the suspects' addresses, including a number of long-barreled firearms, a shotgun and a shotgun shell.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, The U.S. and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
