Turkish jets ‘neutralize’ two PKK militants in north Iraq
ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
Turkish jets “neutralized” two outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) militants as part of a counterterrorism operation in northern Iraq, the military stated on May 2.
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in statements to imply that the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said the warplanes had targeted the PKK in the Avaşin-Basyan region.
Shelters, hideouts, and weapons pits were also destroyed, the statement added.
