Monday, the Turkish police arrested 718 people, including two leaders of the Peoples 'Democratic Party (HDP) that support the Kurds, on suspicion of their association with the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) rebels, to whom Ankara Sunday attributed the "execution" of 13 Turks in Iraq, according to the Ministry of the Interior Monday.

The ministry said that "a large number of weapons, documents and digital materials related to the (terrorist) organization were confiscated during the raids," indicating that the operations included 40 cities in the country and are still continuing.
