Turkiye ‘neutralizes’ 7 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria
Terrorists attempted to infiltrate Operation Peace Spring zone, says National Defense Ministry

By Firat Tasdemir

ANKARA (AA) – Turkish security forces “neutralized” seven YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

The terrorists were targeted as they attempted to infiltrate the area of Operation Peace Spring, a Turkish cross-border anti-terror operation, the ministry said on Twitter.

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 over 40,000 people, including women, children and infants. The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
