2 Terrorists 'Neutralized' In Southeastern Turkey

Wanted terrorist, identified as Firat Gizlenc, was also among those neutralized, Interior Ministry says.

Turkey's armed forces have neutralized two terrorists in an operation conducted in the country's southeastern Sirnak province.
These terrorists were "neutralized" on Oct. 14-15 as part of the Operation Eren-13, according to a statement released by the country's Interior Ministry on Sunday.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralize" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
Provincial gendarmerie command teams with the support of the unmanned aerial vehicles, attack helicopters (ATAK) and air forces conducted the operation against the terrorists, the statement said.
Firat Gizlenc, codenamed Sidar Farkin Amed, one of the terrorists neutralized in the operation, was listed in the grey category of the Interior Ministry's wanted list, with a head money of 500,000 Turkish liras (nearly $56,300).
Turkey's wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red being the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange, and gray.
Gizlenc is accused of providing passage to terrorists living abroad to the country, the statement said.
The terrorist was involved in many terrorist acts in Sirnak, Siirt, Mardin, Batman and Diyarbakir provinces, it added.
Operation Eren, named after Eren Bulbul, a 15-year-old killed by the terrorist PKK on Aug. 11, 2017, began in January to eliminate terrorism in the country.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and EU – has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
