The Turkish intelligence agency neutralized one of the so-called senior members of the PKK/KCK terror group in northern Iraq, security sources said on Tuesday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

Türkiye's National Intelligence Organization carried out a cross-border anti-terror operation to capture Rojda Bilen, codenamed Biseng Brusk, a so-called coordinator of the terror group in Iraq's Sulaymaniyah, the sources said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

The terrorist was neutralized as a result of the operation in a rural area of Sulaymaniyah.
