6 PKK terrorists neutralized in Northern Syria
Turkey on Sunday neutralized six PKK terrorists in cross-border anti-terrorism operations in northern Syria and northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said.
THEY WERE PLOTTING ATTACK
In a statement, the ministry said that two PKK terrorists, who were reportedly plotting an attack action in the Avasin region in northern Iraq, were neutralized.
Four PKK/YPG terrorists were neutralized while attempting to infiltrate the Operation Peace Spring region in northern Syria, the ministry added.
Since 2016, Turkey 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 a peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
