Wanted terrorist among ‘neutralized’ in SE Turkey

Baku, October 11, AZERTAC

A wanted terrorist neutralized last month in southeastern Turkey was on the country's wanted list, the Turkish Interior Ministry said, according to Anadolu Agency.

Nurgul Duran, codenamed Yildiz, was in the orange category of Interior Ministry's wanted list, it said in a statement, adding that she was among the eight terrorists who were neutralized in Operation Yildirim-1 in Beytussebap, Sirnak on Sept. 23-24.

The terrorist operated at a senior level in the Sirnak organization of the PKK terror group in the Silopi district in 2015-2016, and coordinated many terrorist incidents and gave instructions, it added.

Turkey’s wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange, and gray.

Turkish authorities often use the term “neutralized” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
