2 PKK terrorists 'neutralized' in eastern Turkey
Counter-terrorism operations underway in Elazig province

By Ismail Sen

ELAZIG, Turkey (AA) - Turkish forces "neutralized" at least two PKK terrorists in the eastern province of Elazig, according to a statement by the Interior Ministry on Thursday.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

The statement said the operation conducted by gendarmerie forces against the terrorist group in Elazig's Aricak district was still underway.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people, including women and children.
