According to previous reports, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party was established in 1979 to seek to establish an independent state by force in the Kurdish populated areas along Turkey’s borders with Iraq, Iran and Syria. Most of its armed men are now concentrated in northern Iraq and northern Syria. Turkey regards this organization as a terrorist organization and has repeatedly crossed the border to attack PKK targets in Iraq and Syria.
