Turkish jets ‘neutralize’ 11 militants in northern Iraq
In a Twitter post, the Turkish General Staff said the airstrikes “neutralized” seven PKK militants in the Gara region.
The military said the militants were plotting attacks on Turkish bases.
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in statements to imply the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
In a separate statement issued earlier in the day, the army said four PKK militants were also neutralized in the Hakurk and Zap regions in an air operation on Sept. 29.
The strikes also destroyed shelters and ammunition depots belonging to the militants in the area, the statement added.
