Baku, November 3, AZERTAC
Turkey’s Interior Ministry said Friday that 18 PKK terrorists were neutralized between Oct. 31 and Nov. 2, with one being captured alive, according to Anadolu Agency.
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 statement, the ministry said eight of the terrorists had been neutralized in Turkey’s southeastern province of Sirnak by provincial gendarmerie in an operation codenamed "Hancer (Dagger)-6".
The statement added that one of the neutralized terrorists had been responsible for an Oct. 4 attack on Turkish troops in southeastern Turkey which resulted in the martyrdom of eight soldiers.
