Turkey neutralized two YPG/PKK terrorists who attempted to infiltrate into its anti-terror operation area in northern Syria, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.


The infiltration attempts and attacks of the YPG/PKK terror group to disturb the peace and security in the region were prevented, the ministry said in a statement.

"Our heroic commandos neutralized 2 PKK/YPG terrorists in the Operation Peace Spring zone," said the ministry.

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