The Turkish interior minister on Tuesday said at least 15 senior members of the PKK terror group were "neutralized" in the last month while a total of 87 of them since January.


Turkish authorities use the term "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

Some 89 out of 105 KCK/PKK terror suspects with arrest warrants were detained, Suleyman Soylu said during this academic year's opening ceremony at Turkey's Ankara-based Gendarmerie and Coast Guard Academy.

Soylu also said the security forces' persuasion efforts is the "last call" for all members of the terrorist group.
