Turkish security forces "neutralized" at least four PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Friday.

The terrorists were targeted in the Operation Pençe-Şimşek zone, the ministry said on Twitter.

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

PKK terrorists often hide out in northern Iraq, across Turkey's southern border, to plan terrorist attacks in Turkey.

The Pençe operations are a series of offensives Turkey has carried out since 2019 against terrorist groups in northern Iraq, particularly the PKK.
