Turkey eliminates 9 more PKK terrorists in northern Iraq

Read: 350     16:11     16 June 2021    

Turkish security forces "neutralized" nine more PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the National Defence Ministry said on Wednesday.

 


Some five terrorists were "neutralized" as part of the Operations Pence-Simsek and Pence-Yildirim, the ministry said on Twitter.

Turkey launched the Pence-Simsek and Pence-Yildirim operations on April 23 in northern Iraq’s Metina and Avasin-Basyan regions.

Turkish forces also “neutralized” four more PKK terrorists in an air operation in the Gara region in northern Iraq, the ministry said in a statement.

Authorities use the word "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

The PKK terror group often hides out in northern Iraq, just across Turkey's southern border, to plot terror 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.
