Turkey ‘neutralizes’ 6 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria
Turkish forces “neutralized” six YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the country’s National Defense Ministry said on Saturday.
In a statement, the ministry said the terrorists were preparing to launch an attack in order to disrupt the environment of peace and security in the Operation Olive Branch zone.
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).
