10 PKK terrorists ‘neutralized’ in north Iraq

Baku, July 30, AZERTAC

A total of 10 PKK terrorists were “neutralized” during anti-terror operations in northern Iraq, the Turkish military said on Monday, 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.

In a post on its official Twitter account, the Turkish General Staff said that the operations were conducted on July 29 against PKK terrorists in northern Iraq's Metina region.

In its more than 30-year terror 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, including women and children.
