ANKARA - Anadolu Agency
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
In a post on its official Twitter account, the Turkish General Staff said airstrikes were conducted between July 21 and July 22 in eastern Hakkari and Erzincan provinces and Avasin-Basyan regions in northern Iraq.
Meanwhile, one village guard was killed and three other security personnel wounded in a rocket attack launched by the PKK in Hakkari’s Şemdinli district on July 22, Demirören News Agency reported, citing a statement made by the office of the Hakkari governor.
