ANKARA (AA) - Turkish forces have "neutralized" eight members of the PKK terrorist organization in northern Iraq, the Defense Ministry said Friday.

Detected in the Gara region, the terrorists were "neutralized" in a subsequent airstrike, the ministry said on Twitter.

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

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