Turkish Armed Forces neutralize 7 terrorists in Northern Syria
Turkish security forces neutralized at least seven YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the National Defense Ministry announced on Tuesday.
"OUR OPERATIONS WILL CONTINUE"
The terrorists were attempting to infiltrate into Turkey's cross-border anti-terror Operation Peace Spring region, the ministry said on Twitter.
It also shared a footage of the operation. "Our operations will continue without any letup," it added.
Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations 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).
Terrorist groups, particularly the YPG/PKK, often try to infiltrate and mount attacks in these areas to disturb the peace and stability restored by Turkey.
