Turkey neutralizes 5 PKK terrorists in northern Iraq


Turkish security forces neutralized five more 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, the ministry said in a tweet.

Turkish authorities 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.
