Turkish forces "neutralized" 14 PKK terrorists in Saturday's airstrikes held in Avasin region of northern Iraq, said the army on social media on Sunday.

Turkish Armed Forces said in a Twitter post that Turkish fighter jets 'neutralized' 14 PKK terrorists on Saturday in the airstrikes held in Avasin region.

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

The terror group’s weapon emplacements, shelters and ammo depots were also destroyed in the airstrikes, the military said.

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