Turkey neutralized at least 14 YPG/PKK terrorists attempting to infiltrate its cross-border anti-terror operation zone in northern Syria, Turkish National Defense Ministry said Friday.

"We will not let terrorist organization PKK/YPG to disrupt peace and security in [Operation] Peace Spring region. Our heroic commandos, who took every measure in the region, prevented another infiltration attempt and neutralized 14 YPG/PKK terrorists," the ministry said on Twitter.

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 to enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
