ISTANBUL, Nov 17 (KUNA) -- Turkey's General Directorate of Security issued
strict orders to all security and intelligence bodies across the country to
take all necessary measures to counter any possible attack, similar to the
assault on Istanbul which claimed many lives months ago.
The intensive security measures were ordered after intelligence information
suggested members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) managed to enter the
Turkish capital, Ankara, to execute suicide bombings, Turkish daily Zaman
cited security sources as saying.
Sources meanwhile said the main target of these terrorist operations is a
senior army commander.
The daily also said that the plan was to carry out terrorist operations
before the local elections, due in March, noting that all security authorities
tightened security procedures to foil any possible operation and to hunt PKK
