The Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) have neutralized 10 members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in northern Iraq and southeastern Turkey, the military said June 29.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply the members of the outlawed organizations in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

The PKK was designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU.

The Turkish General Staff said on Twitter that the PKK members were neutralized June 28 in northern Iraq’s Hakurk and Kani Rash regions and Turkey's Hakkari province.

Among those neutralized was Hamza, alias Ahmet Taşçı, who is mentioned in the grey category of the Turkish Interior Ministry’s wanted list.
