PKK sets date for withdrawal from Turkey

The Kurdish rebel group the PKK has announced it will withdraw its thousands of fighters from Turkey starting on May 8.

The rebels from the Kurdistan Worker’s Party (PKK), who have been fighting the Turkish government for the last three decades, will move to northern Iraq after leaving Turkish territory.

During the announcement, the armed group warned Turkey’s powerful military against “provocations” which would result in the end of the pledged withdrawal.
