Turkish jets neutralize terrorists in northern Iraq

Analytical Wing A- A A+

An airstrike by Turkish Armed Forces neutralized two terrorists in northern Iraq, the military said.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

In a briefing, Turkish Armed Forces said the airstrike was carried out in Metina region, neutralizing the terrorists, who were reportedly plotting an attack on military bases.

A weapon pit, shelters and ammunition depots used by the terror group were also destroyed in the airstrike.

Turkish airstrikes in this region mostly target PKK terrorists.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people.
