100 PKK militants killed in a week
A total of 100 militants belonging to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) were 'neutralized' in operations against the armed group across Turkey last week, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Dec.2.
The authorities use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply that the militants in question were either killed, wounded or captured.
Addressing a crowd in Turkey's northeast Kars province, Erdogan said: "If they [PKK] continue their efforts on dividing this country, those hundred will be 200, 300, 1,000."
"Nobody should think that they can separate our territorial integrity," Erdogan said.
"They should know that we will continue to bomb them with F-16 jets, like we did it Mount Cudi, Mount Tendurek and Mount Qandil."
