Seven PKK militants ‘neutralized’ in northern Iraq, southeastern Turkey
ANKARA - Anadolu Agency
Seven outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants were “neutralized” during air operations over the last two days in northern Iraq and southeastern Turkey, the Turkish army said on April 10.
The Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in statements to imply that the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
Turkish jets hit PKK targets in the southeastern Turkish province of Şırnak as well as in the Zap and Hakurk regions of northern Iraq, the Turkish General Staff said.
Four shelters used by PKK militants were destroyed.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the EU.
