The Turkish Defense Ministry announced air strikes on the targets of the RKK terrorists in the Gara region in northern Iraq, seven militants of the banned organization were eliminated.
According to the Turkish Ministry of National Defense, among the neutralized terrorists are militants who were part of the “command staff” of the RKK.
“The Turkish army will continue to fight the terrorists of the RKK, right up to the destruction of the last militant,” the message says.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that from 1984, when PKK militants first committed a bloody crime in Turkey, and until March 2020, 7,500 members of the Turkish security forces and 6,800 civilians have died at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union have listed PKK as terrorist organizations.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to resolve the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
In recent years, PKK has sought to shift responsibility for the bloody crimes in the region onto its offshoots.
In Syria, PKK terrorists hide behind the names PYD and YPG, and in the past two years have called themselves the “Syrian Democratic Forces.”
In Iran, the PKK acts as the Party of Free Life of Kurdistan (PJAK).
