2 PKK terrorists neutralized in northeast Turkey


Turkish security forces neutralized two PKK terrorists in the Black Sea province of Giresun on Thursday, APA reports quoting Anadolu.

 

Security sources, who asked not to be named for security reasons, told Anadolu Agency that the two PKK terrorists have been neutralized in a clash with security forces in the district of Guce.

 

Security operations were still underway in the region, sources said.

 

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

 

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years and has been responsible for the deaths of nearly 40,000 people.

 

More than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children, have been killed since July 2015 alone when the group resumed its armed campaign against the country.
