Dozens detained in Hakkari
Turkish police stormed dozens of homes and detained at least 30 people in Hakkari province in northern Kurdistan.
The wave of persecution against the democratic opposition in Turkey in the run-up to Sunday's run-off election for the presidency continues. In the Kurdish resistance stronghold of Hakkari, Turkish police stormed dozens of homes and detained at least 30 people on Thursday. Those taken into custody are currently at the Hakkari police station, accused of "propaganda for a terrorist organisation" or "membership in a terrorist organisation".
Over a hundred people from the HDP and the Green Left Party were detained in similar political raids in recent days.
