Turkish security forces have "neutralized" two PKK terrorists in southeastern Türkiye, the country’s interior minister said on Thursday.
The terrorists were “neutralized” by gendarmerie forces in an operation aided by aerial vehicles in the Beytussebap district of the Sirnak province, Interior Minister Ali Yerlikaya said on X, a social media platform formerly known as Twitter.
Turkish authorities use the term "neutralized" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
"I congratulate our heroes who carried out the operation. Our fight will continue until terrorism is eradicated," Yerlikaya said.
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 more than 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
