Turkish armed forces neutralize 5 terrorists in anti-terror operation
Turkish security forces neutralized five PKK terrorists as part of the ongoing Operation Claw-Tiger in northern Iraq, the country's National Defense Ministry said Thursday.
"OUR OPERATIONS WILL CONTINUE"
Saying the operation was continuing successfully, the ministry said on Twitter that the terrorists were neutralized by an air operation in northern Iraq's Haftanin region.
"Our operations are to continue until the very last terrorist is neutralized," it added.
Turkey's operations Claw-Tiger and Claw-Eagle were launched in June to ensure the safety of the Turkish people and borders by neutralizing the threat of PKK and other terrorist groups that often use northern Iraq to plan cross-border attacks.
