Turkey Claims It "Neutralized" Three PKK Fighters

ERBIL - Turkey claimed on Saturday that it had "neutralized" three members of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) in Kurdistan Region's border areas.

Turkey's National Defense Ministry noted in a statement that the trio was "neutralized" during an operation backed by the country’s air force in Zap region, as cited by Anadolu Agency.

Turkish authorities often use the term "neutralized" to imply that the PKK fighters in question were either killed or arrested.

Turkey views the PKK as a "terrorist organisation" and there is a decades-long military conflict between the two sides over the Kurdish question in the country.
