Turkey neutralized three terrorists in the southeastern Sirnak province, the Interior Ministry announced Wednesday.

Terrorists were neutralized in air-backed operation by the local gendarmerie command at the Bestler Dereler region.

The operations are ongoing in the region, the statement added.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US and the European Union -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including many women, children and infants.
