As a result of the coordinated work of the special services and the Turkish Armed Forces in the Gara region in northern Iraq, two militants of the PKK terrorist organization were neutralized. The Ministry of National Defense of Turkey reported this in social media on Saturday.
“The Turkish Armed Forces continue to destroy the“ lairs ”of terrorists in the north of Iraq. Two more RKK militants identified in the Iraqi region of Gara were neutralized by an air strike, ”the defense ministry said in a statement.
RKK terrorists carry out bloody attacks to destabilize the situation and split Turkey.
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 Turkish security forces and 6,800 civilians were killed 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 “Syrian Democrats.
