Four PKK militants ‘neutralized’ in Turkey’s southeast
DİYARBAKIR – Anadolu Agency
At least four outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) militants were “neutralized” during counter-terror operations in southeastern province of Diyarbakır on April 19, the provincial governor’s office said in a statement.
The Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply that the militants in question were either killed or captured.
The operation by gendarmerie units in Diyarbakir’s Lice, Hani and Kulp districts are continuing, the statement said.
Gendarmerie forces also seized and destroyed 30,000 cannabis plants, it added.
