Turkish forces ‘neutralize’ 13 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria
Harassing fire by terrorists does not go unpunished, says National Defense Ministry

By Burak Dag

ANKARA (AA) - At least 13 YPG/PKK terrorists were "neutralized" after they opened harassing fire on Türkiye’s cross-border anti-terror operation areas in northern Syria, the Turkish National Defense Ministry said on Friday.

The terrorists opened harassing fire on the regions cleared of terrorist elements as part of Türkiye’s Euphrates Shield and Peace Spring operations, the ministry said in a written statement.

"Harassing fire by terrorists does not go unpunished," the ministry added.

Turkish authorities use the term "neutralized" 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 Türkiye, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, 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.
