Turkish security forces eliminated two terrorists of the YPG, the Syrian wing of the PKK terrorist group, in Operation Euphrates Shield region in northern Syria, the defence ministry announced on Monday.

 


The ministry stated that the terrorists were in preparation for a terrorist act. It added that these attacks would not be left without a retaliatory answer.

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

Ankara considers the YPG/PKK a grave national security threat. Meanwhile, the group was largely deployed by the U.S.-led anti-Daesh coalition within the pretext of fighting the terrorist group on the ground.

Furthermore, the ministry had also stated a day ago that seven PKK terrorists were killed in counterterrorism operations in northern Iraq.

The terrorists were killed at different locations during Turkey's Claw operations in the region, the ministry said in a statement.

"Our operations will continue until the last terrorist is eliminated!" the ministry added.

The Turkish military regularly conducts cross-border operations in northern Iraq. Turkey has long been stressing that it will not tolerate terrorist threats posed against its national security and has called on Iraqi officials to take the necessary steps to eliminate the terrorist group. Ankara previously noted that if the expected steps were not taken, it would not shy from targeting terrorist threats.

Turkey launched Operations Claw-Lightning and Claw-Thunderbolt on April 23 in northern Iraq’s Metina and Avaşin-Basyan regions near its borders.

Numerous PKK terrorist hideouts and bases are located in northern Iraq, from where they carry out attacks on Turkey.

In its more than 40-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women and children.
