Curfew lifted in southeastern district of Yuksekova

A statement published on the Hakkari governor’s office website said the curfew, which was imposed as effective of 8 pm. on Nov. 20, was lifted as of 6 a.m. on Monday. The reason for the curfew was stated as being an attempt at restoring the peace after an increased number of acts of terrorism in the district.

“We thank our citizens for showing awareness to the curfew,” the statement said.

Turkey’ mainly Kurdish Southeast has been the scene of clashes between the security forces and members of the terrorist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) since the two-year cease-fire between the terrorist PKK and the government collapsed in July.
