Conflicts A- A A+

Turkish forces have neutralized eight members of the PKK terrorist organization in northern Iraq, Eurasia Diary reports citing Yeni Safak.

Detected in the Gara region, the terrorists were neutralized in a subsequent airstrike, the ministry said on Twitter.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralize" to imply terrorists inquestion surrendered, were killed or captured.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as aterrorist group by Turkey, the US and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
