Turkish airstrikes "neutralized" at least three PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Saturday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

The terrorists were targeted in Sinjar and Haftanin regions, the ministry said on Twitter.

Turkish authorities use the word "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

PKK terrorists often hide out in northern Iraq, across Turkiye's southern border, to plan terrorist attacks in Turkiye.

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkiye, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkiye, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
