Turkey: 10 Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters killed in Turkey and in northern Iraq
Turkish airstrikes killed four members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in northern Iraq and six others across Turkey, said Turkey’s defense and interior ministries on Thursday.
“Four PKK terrorists were neutralized in Hakurk, Zap and Haftanin regions in an air-backed operation after determined by means of reconnaissance and surveillance. Our operations continue without pausing,” said the ministry in its Twitter account.
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in statements to imply the “terrorists” who surrendered or were killed or captured.
Meanwhile, three “terrorists” were killed in the southeastern Adiyaman province of Turkey and three others were killed in the rural areas of Agri province, Turkish Interior Ministry said in a written statement.
