Turkish jets 'neutralize' 3 PKK terrorists in northern Iraq

Turkish jets "neutralized" at least three PKK terrorists in an anti-terror operation in Iraq's northern Gara region, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

The terrorists were "neutralized" in a successful air operation by Turkish Air Force, the ministry said on Twitter.

"Our fight against terrorism continues effectively and decisively," it added.

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

PKK terrorists often hide out in northern Iraq to plot cross-border attacks in Turkey.

In its more than 35-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 at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
