Turkey 'Neutralizes' 3 YPG/PKK Terrorists In Northern Syria

Terrorists were preparing to launch attack in Operation Euphrates Shield zone, says National Defense Ministry.

Turkish security forces neutralized three YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Saturday.
The terrorists were preparing to launch an attack in the Operation Euphrates Shield zone when they were neutralized by Turkish commandos, the ministry said in a statement.
Two shelters and a site used by the terror group were also destroyed in the operation, the ministry added.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in statements to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
While the terrorist presence in these areas has been largely eradicated, terror groups have made periodic efforts to shatter the peace in the region.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the PKK's Syrian offshoot.
