– 6 terrorists ‘neutralized’ in air strike, military says
The Turkish Air Force killed six PKK terrorists in a strike on northern Iraq.
According to a Turkish General Staff statement, the terrorists were planning an attack on military posts and bases when they were “neutralized”, a term the military uses to signify the killing of terrorists.
The counter-terror operation was conducted in Kani Rash town.
The PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — resumed its armed campaign against Turkey in July 2015.
Since then, it has been responsible for the deaths of more than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children.
