Turkish security forces “neutralized” five YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the Turkish National Defense Ministry announced on Friday.

The terrorists were neutralized in an operation carried out in the Operation Peace Spring region against the terrorists who "martyred" Cihan Gökkaya, a personnel of Turkey's State Hydraulic Works, the ministry said on Twitter.

The statement also wished Allah's mercy on the "martyr" and conveyed condolences to his relatives.

"Our operations in the region continue," it added. Turkish authorities use the term “neutralize” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

Meanwhile, Turkish security forces Friday nabbed 41 Daesh/ISIS suspects and a PKK terror group suspect in anti-terror operations across various parts of the country ahead of the New Year holiday.
