10 PKK terrorists ‘neutralized’ in eastern Turkey

Baku, August 12, AZERTAC

At least 10 PKK terrorists were “neutralized” in eastern Turkey, the country’s Interior ministry said, Anadolu Agency reported.

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

The terrorists were “neutralized” during a counter-terrorism operation in Tunceli province, according to the ministry.

In its more than 30-year terrorist 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.
