The Turkish military "neutralized" six terrorists in northern Iraq, it said on Friday.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
In a message posted on its official Twitter account, the Turkish General Staff said the military carried out an air operation in Hakurk region, a PKK stronghold.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey as well as the U.S. and the EU.
In its terror campaign against Turkey, which has lasted for more than three decades, over 40,000 people have been killed, including women and children.
