Italian 'model' security comes to the High Speed Train, which runs between Ankara, Eskişehir and Konya.
According to the news of Kamil Elibol from his newspaper today, the 'three' stage security concept will be applied against sabotage incidents against YHT. The State Railways (TCDD) and the General Directorate of Security and the Gendarmerie General Command scrutinized the security of the train, line and YHT. The delegation consisting of the representatives of the three institutions went from Ankara to Eskişehir by High Speed Train.
The second inspection trip will be made to Konya. The commission determined the security measures to be taken on the railway, lines and trains. Train stations will be like airports. Warning sensors will be placed on the lines. The decisions taken by the commission will be presented to the Minister of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Binali Yıldırım, and the Minister of Interior Idris Naim Şahin. Planned security measures will be implemented in order after both Ministers' approval.
Train stations will get the security concept at the airports. X-Ray devices will be made operational. All passenger suitcases and suitcases will be passed through XRay. Door detectors will be installed in the station. Passengers will be loaded on the train after being searched with the door-hand detector. Suspicious passengers will be searched manually when necessary. The number of private security personnel in the stations will be doubled. Warning "sensors" will be placed on the lines of high speed trains, which travel 250 kilometers per hour, against any kind of external intervention, especially "sabotage". The smallest intervention on YHT rails will be instantly seen on the digital map through sensors. In such cases, the police or gendarmerie teams will be quickly dispatched to the region where the signal is received.
PKK planned sabotage
The PKK / KCK targeted the High Speed Trains terrorist organization, which runs flights between Ankara-Eskişehir and Ankara-Konya. It was found that members of the terrorist organization caught in the operation held in Kırıkkale on the Kurtalan Express, which departed from Siirt last year, planned a bomb sabotage on the Ankara-Eskişehir YHT line. The Intelligence Department of the General Directorate of Security received significant reports that the PKK / KCK is designing "bomb" sabotage on existing and new YHT lines or trains. Action plans for YHTs reflected in some terrorists' encrypted phone calls were recorded.
