Baku, June 19, AZERTAC
Turkish security forces "neutralized" nine PKK terrorists near the Turkish border in northern Iraq, authorities said on Saturday, according to Anadolu Agency.
The terrorists were targeted in the Operation Claw-Lock zone, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Twitter.
Turkish authorities use the term "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
Türkiye launched Operation Claw-Lock in April to target the PKK terror organization's hideouts in Iraq's northern Metina, Zap, and Avasin-Basyan regions, near the Turkish border.
It was preceded by Operations Claw-Tiger and Claw-Eagle, which were launched in 2020 to root out terrorists hiding in northern Iraq and plotting cross-border attacks in Türkiye.
