The activities of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê, or PKK) have been outlawed in Germany since 1993. The organization, however, remains active in the country through the proxy of a series of affiliated associations –which is interpreted in Turkey as proof of Germany’s tacit support of PKK terror. In this regard, Turkish officials and representatives have repeatedly called on German authorities to take more decisive steps against the group and show zero tolerance to terrorism.1 Although Germany refuses to meet Turkey’s demands and continues to turn a blind eye to the PKK’s activities, German authorities have at times cracked down on terror networks extensively and, other times, loosened their grip on the organization, which has been closely associated with the cyclical developments. Meanwhile, the German government tends to closely follow developments in Turkey, on which the PKK’s armed struggle primarily focuses. In this sense, Germany has been watching the PKK’s return to violence and a series of counter-terror operations conducted by the security forces since July 22, 2015.
