Ministry: Six PKK/YPG terrorists neutralized

A total of six PKK/YPG terrorists have been neutralized in the Operation Euphrates Shield zone, the Turkish Defense Ministry has announced.

“There is no escape from the end that awaits them for the terrorists. The operations will continue without any interruption,” the ministry said in a social media post.

To clear the region of PKK/YPG terrorists, the Euphrates Shield Operation was conducted by Turkish forces in Syria’s Aleppo province between Aug. 24, 2016, and March 29, 2017.

Meanwhile, two of the three PKK suspects detained in the operation carried out in the southeastern province of Gaziantep have been arrested.

While a large number of documents and digital materials linked to terror were seized from the addresses of the three suspects, the other suspect was freed by a judicial control decision.

“Neutralized” is a term used by the Turkish military and officials to indicate terrorists were either killed, wounded, or captured. The ministry ranks those included on the list in five color-coded categories from red (most wanted) to blue, green, orange and grey.
