Turkiye 'neutralizes' 10 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria
Terrorists attempted to attack Operation Peace Spring zone, says National Defense Ministry

By Baris Gundogan

ANKARA (AA) – Turkish security forces "neutralized" 10 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, across Turkiye's border, authorities said on Saturday.

According to the Turkish National Defense Ministry, the terrorists attempted to attack the area of Operation Peace Spring, a Turkish cross-border anti-terror operation.

It said on Twitter that Turkish soldiers had prevented the attempted attack by YPG/PKK terrorists, neutralizing ten of them.

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

Since 2016, Ankara 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 Turkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkiye, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
