Türkiye ‘neutralizes’ two PKK/YPG terrorists in northern Syria

Conflicts A- A A+

Turkish security forces “neutralized” two PKK/YPG terrorists in northern Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Wednesday, Yeni Safak reports. 

They were targeted in Operation Euphrates Shield zone, the ministry said in a statement.

Turkish authorities use the term “neutralize” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

Since 2016, Ankara has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of more than 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the terror group’s Syrian offshoot.
