Baku, October 2, AZERTAC
Turkish security forces "neutralized" 23 PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Sunday, according to Anadolu Agency.
The terrorists were neutralized in an airstrike in northern Iraq’s Asos region, the ministry said on Twitter, also posting footage of the operation.
Turkish 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 Türkiye's southern border, to plot terror attacks in Türkiye.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
