Turkey neutralizes 2 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria

ANKARA (AA) - Turkish security forces neutralized at least two YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria near the border, Turkey's National Defense Ministry said on Friday.

The terrorists, who were preparing for an attack in the Operation Euphrates Shield zone, were neutralized in a successful operation by "hero commandos," the ministry said on Twitter.

"All kinds of measures will continue to be taken for the continuation of peace and tranquility in the region," the statement said.

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

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).

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
