UPDATE - Turkish forces 'neutralize' 3 PKK terrorists in N.Iraq

UPDATE WITH MORE DETAILS

By Burak Dag

ANKARA (AA) - Turkish security forces "neutralized" three PKK terrorists as part of Operation Claw-Tiger in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Thursday.


The terrorists were targeted in the Haftanin region in an air-backed operation, the ministry said on Twitter.


The operation is successfully ongoing and it would continue until the last terrorist is neutralized, it added.

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


In a separate Twitter post, the ministry said that Turkish commandos found a 1.2-kilometer-long (0.74-mile) tunnel belonging to the PKK, and seized arms, a huge cache of ammunition and life-sustaining materials used by the PKK terrorists.


Turkey's operations Claw-Tiger and Claw-Eagle were launched last month to ensure the safety of the Turkish people and borders by neutralizing the threat of the PKK and other terrorist groups, who often use northern Iraq to plan cross-border attacks.

In its more than 30-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.
