Gendarmerie commandos, known as “Euphrates” and carrying out their operations against the terrorist organization PKK in Erzincan with determination, do not let the members of the organization look on the snow-covered Mercan and Munzur mountains.
The Refahiye Gendarmerie Commando Battalion Command teams, known as "Fırats" affiliated to the Provincial Gendarmerie Command, continue their operations in order to decipher and prevent the activities of the terrorist organization, to capture or neutralize the members of the organization, and to prevent the winter bases of terrorists by destroying their shelters.
Fıratlar, who is always ready for duty for the peace and security of the people, evaluates the intelligence received without waiting for any notice and starts operations against terrorists.
In the early hours of the morning, the commandos, wearing new nanotechnological camouflages with water-repellent properties prepared with fabrics made of high-strength yarn, and donning their weapons, go to the field with armored vehicles in line with the necessary planning and orders from their commanders.
The elite commando team, which carries out operations against terrorists with the principle of "search, find, destroy" in the rural areas of its responsibility, especially in the Munzur and Mercan Mountains, continues its mission with determination despite the difficult terrain and climatic conditions such as snow-covered lands, freezing temperatures, steep rocky and forested areas.
The teams, which do not allow the terrorists to take over the winter by searching the lands where the snow thickness reaches 2 meters in places, do not allow the terrorists to take over the winter, find and destroy the caves, shelters and shelters where the terrorists can take shelter.
Fıratlar, which detects and destroys the explosives that terrorists placed on the land from time to time in their field search with discipline and meticulousness, also inflicts a heavy blow to the organization in terms of logistics by controlling the caves, shelters and shelters where the members of the organization can be found, and seizing various weapons and ammunition.
The Refahiye Gendarmerie Battalion Command teams, which were established in the strategically important region due to the fact that the terrorists are on the transition route to the Black Sea region, work on the basis of 7 days and 24 hours, and do not let the terrorists in.
