Turkish security forces "neutralized" 14 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, across Turkey's border, the National Defense Ministry said.

The terrorists opened harassing fire in the Operation Peace Spring and Operation Euphrates Shield zones, the ministry said on Twitter.

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).
