1,028 militants ‘neutralized’ in Turkey’s Afrin operation: Turkish military
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 statement, the military said the Turkish Armed Forces had “neutralized” 29 YPG militants in airstrikes that were carried out overnight on Feb. 7.
On Jan. 20, Turkey launched “Operation Olive Branch” to clear YPG militants from Afrin in northwestern Syria.
