Turkey: 64 terrorists neutralized in N. Iraq operation
Turkey’s security forces neutralize 3 more PKK terrorists in counter-terror Operation Claw

By Busra Nur Bilgic

ANKARA (AA) – Bodies of three terrorists found in a cave, increasing the number of terrorists killed in Operation Claw to 64, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Sunday.

On May 27, Turkey launched Operation Claw against the terrorist organization PKK in the Hakurk region of northern Iraq.

On Saturday, Turkey launched counter-terror Operation Claw-2 as a follow-up on the successfully ongoing Claw-1 operation in Hakurk area which revealed new information on terrorist activity, according to the ministry.

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

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 many women and children.
