Turkish jets target PKK militants plotting attack on bases in north Iraq
The Turkish Air Forces have killed six militants of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in a strike on northern Iraq, the military stated on Jan. 7.
According to a statement from the General Staff, the militants were planning an attack on military posts and bases when they were “neutralized.”
The authorities use the term “neutralized” in statements to imply that the militants in question were either killed, wounded or captured.
The “counter-terror operation” was conducted in the town of Kani Rash, the statement added.
