Turkish security forces neutralized three YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, near the Turkish border, the National Defense Ministry announced on Tuesday, Anadolu Agency reported.

Commandos neutralized the militants as part of continuing efforts to prevent terrorist infiltration into the Operation Peace Spring area, the ministry said on Twitter.

“Another attempt to infiltrate the Operation Peace Spring area was successfully prevented,” it said.

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

Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and to enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).

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. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
