Turkish security forces “neutralized” 13 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.
 
The terrorists, who were found to be preparing an attack, were targeted after they opened harassing fire in regions of Türkiye’s anti-terror operations.
 
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 over 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
