At least three terrorists have been neutralized in northeastern Turkey, the Interior Ministry said on Sunday.

As part of anti-terror efforts to ensure internal security, gendarmerie forces carried out the operation in rural areas of Kars province, the ministry said in a statement.

Operations are ongoing in the region, it added.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in statements to imply terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
