Turkey on Monday neutralized two YPG/PKK terrorists attempting to infiltrate its cross-border anti-terror operation zone in northern Syria, Turkish authorities said Monday.


"Two PKK/YPG terrorists, who attempted to infiltrate into the [Operation] Euphrates Shield area by opening harassing fire, were neutralized in a successful intervention by our heroic commandos," the National Defense 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 enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
