Turkey neutralizes 3 PKK terrorists in northern Iraq

ANKARA

Turkish security forces have neutralized three PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the country’s Defense Ministry said on Saturday.

The terrorists were neutralized in an air-backed operation in the Metina region, where they were planning an armed attack, the ministry said in a tweet.

The terrorists were found through joint reconnaissance and surveillance activities, it added.

Turkish authorities often use the term “neutralize” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

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