Turkish security forces have launched an operation targeting shelters and stores believed to belong to the Kurdistan Workers Party, the military said on Tuesday, days after the group's jailed leader called its armed struggle "unsustainable".

Teams in the southeastern Mardin province were looking for outposts of the group, which has waged a three-decade insurgency against Ankara.

"Security forces are conducting an operation with five teams with the aim of identifying and destroying shelters and stores believed to belong to the separatist terrorist group in the Mazidag countryside of Mardin," the military said in a statement.
