Turkish military neutralizes 12 terrorists in northern Syria

The Turkish Armed Forces neutralized 12 YPG militants in northern Syria (the Syrian wing of the PKK terrorists – ed.). This was announced on Sunday by the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey.
According to the report, the militants fired at the zones of the Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch antiterrorist operations.

The Ministry of Defense stressed that the Turkish Armed Forces will continue to eliminate threats in the region.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said earlier that since 1984, when the PKK militants first carried out a terrorist attack in Turkey, thousands of Turkish security forces, military and civilians have died at the hands of this bloody organization.

The United States and the European Union have listed the PKK as a terrorist organization.

In recent years, the PKK has sought to shift responsibility for the bloody crimes in the region to its offshoots.

In Syria, PKK terrorists cover themselves with the names PYD and YPG, and in the last two years they have called themselves the “Syrian Democratic Forces”.

In Iran, the PKK operates as the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK).
