ANKARA 22-10-22 – The National Intelligence Organization (MİT) has brought Burhan Piçak, who was leading PKK/KCK’s “assassination unit,” to Türkiye in the operation carried out in northern Iraq.
Piçak, code-named Canşer/Laşer, was determined to cross into Syria from the southeastern province of Diyarbakır’s Lice district in 2015 and join the PKK.
After receiving training within the YPG, the PKK’s offshoot in Syria, he carried out activities in the organization’s battalion against the Peace Spring Operation carried out in 2019.
The operation in Aleppo, within Hasakah and Raqqa was a cross-border operation Türkiye conducted in northern Syria to clear the region of PKK/YPG terrorists.
Piçak, who was in Syria’s Tabqa region in 2019 and 2020, received “expert assassination training” in Syria’s Sarrin and was assigned to the assassination unit.
He was subsequently assigned to the Sinjar region of Iraq’s capital Mosul, where he operated as a commander.
