Turkish army neutralizes 3 PKK/PYD-YPG terrorists


The Turkish army "neutralized" three PKK/PYD-YPG terrorists in response to terrorist harassment fire on a border post in southeastern Turkey on the Syrian frontier, according to the Turkish General Staff, APA reports quoting AA.

 

The terrorists were neutralized after the PKK/PYD-YPG terrorists commenced cross-border harassment fire on a border post in Akcale, in the southeastern Sanliurfa province, a statement from the military said, without giving further details.

 

The military generally uses the term "neutralize" to signify that the targets have been killed.

 

The counter-attack was carried out in line with Turkey's right to self-defense, it added.

 

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people.

 

The PYD/YPG are Syrian branches of the terrorist PKK and the focus of Turkey's successful counter-terrorist Operation Olive Branch in Afrin, Syria, near the border with Turkey.
