    ISTANBUL,— Turkish security forces detained 318 members of Kurdish political party in the country as part of an ongoing crackdown by the state on the HDP party and individuals accused of links to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK). ANF news agency reported.
    Turkish police detained more than 500 people on Monday in operations across Turkey targeting suspects linked with the PKK militant group, state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

    It said senior members of the group were among the 544 suspects held in operations across 25 provinces, including the major western cities of Istanbul and Izmir.
    The Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) said in released statement that more than 318 people including administrators, provincial-district co-chairs and members of the HDP have been detained in Istanbul, İzmir, Van, Adana, Adıyaman, Kocaeli, Antep, Siirt, Bingöl, Malatya, Bursa and Ağrı provinces and their districts today.
    The statement said “The operations against our party, ongoing since July 2015, continue increasingly without a pause since the coup attempt of July 15, 2016. As many as 859 administrators, provincial-district co-chairs and members of our party were detained and 112 of them were arrested since the first day of 2017. As result of continued political genocide operations against our party and its constituents, at least 318 people have been unlawfully arrested today.”
    “A total of 9,796 people have been taken into custody in operations against our party and its constituents since 22.07.2015, and 2,906 of them were jailed, including Co-chairs, deputies, provincial-district co-chairs, administrators and members of our party. According to figures compiled by our IT department, 5,471 people from our party were detained and 1482 were imprisoned since July 2016. The main goal of these operations, escalated after the finalization of the referendum date, is to make a referendum without the HDP.” the statement added.
    In May 2016, parliament voted to strip lawmakers of their legal immunity, paving the way for the HDP legislators’ arrests.
    In November 2016, 12 Kurdish HDP lawmakers, including the two co-leaders, Selahattin Demirtas and Figen Yuksekdag, were arrested on charges of links to the PKK which they deny.

    The government accuses the HDP of having links to the PKK, a charge that the HDP denies.
    The PKK took up arms in 1984 against the Turkish state, which still denies the constitutional existence of Kurds, to push for greater autonomy for the Kurdish minority who make up around 22.5 million of the country’s 79-million population.
    A large Kurdish community in Turkey and worldwide openly sympathise with PKK rebels and Abdullah Ocalan, who founded the PKK group in 1974, and has a high symbolic value for most Kurds in Turkey and worldwide according to observers.
