Turkish Intel Captures Accused PKK Terrorist Ringleader

23.02.2024 15:42

Murat Kizil, codenamed Mazlum Mardin, reportedly joined rural ranks of terrorist group PKK in 2015.

In a joint operation, Türkiye's National Intelligence Organization (MIT) and Security Directorate General captured Murat Kizil, a ringleader of the terrorist group PKK, said security sources on Friday.

Kizil, codenamed Mazlum Mardin, was captured after the MIT and directorate intelligence offices determined his location as he was preparing to flee to Europe, said the sources, who asked not to be named as they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Kizil reportedly joined the rural ranks of the terrorist group in 2015.

Kizil, allegedly a senior terrorist in Syria and Iraq, is wanted for the crime of membership in an armed terrorist organization.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US and the European Union – has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is its Syrian branch.
