Turkish security forces “neutralized” six PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, a region near the Turkish border, the National Defense Ministry said on Monday.

The terrorists were “neutralized” in the Operation Claw-Lock area, the ministry said on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Our Turkish Armed Forces, whose strength comes from our noble nation, continue to carry out the counter-terrorism operation in northern Iraq without letup,” the ministry added, APA's Istanbul correspondent reports.

It also expressed determination to continue operations “until there is not a single terrorist left in the region.”

Turkish authorities use the term “neutralized” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

PKK terrorists often hide out across the border in northern Iraq to plot terror attacks in Türkiye.

Türkiye launched Operation Claw-Lock in 2022 to target the PKK terror organization’s hideouts in northern Iraq’s Metina, Zap, and Avasin-Basyan regions near the Turkish border.
