UPDATE 2- 10 Terrorists 'Neutralized' In SE Turkey

Terrorists, including 1 wanted in top red category, neutralized in Mt. Domuz in Sirnak province: Interior minister.

At least 10 terrorists were neutralized since Wednesday in a joint operation by gendarmerie and special police forces in southeastern Turkey, the country's interior minister said on Thursday.
The terrorists, including one in the top red category of the Interior Ministry's wanted list, were neutralized in a clash in Mt. Domuz as part of the Eren-10 anti-terror operation in the Sirnak province, Suleyman Soylu said on Twitter.
"Heroes, may Allah bless you," Soylu said, referring to commandos taking part in the operation.
He also underlined that the operations in the region are underway.
In a Van-based operation conducted simultaneously in three provinces -- Van, Kocaeli and Hakkari -- five suspects were taken into custody, the governor's office said in a statement.
The provincial gendarmerie command launched an operation against terrorists in a rural area of Hozat in the eastern Tunceli province. The forces destroyed four shelters and seized a large cache of survival supplies, the statement said.
Though the minister did not specify the terrorists' affiliation, the PKK terror group has been active in eastern and southeastern Turkey.
Operation Eren, named after Eren Bulbul, a 15-year-old martyred by the terrorist PKK on Aug. 11, 2017, commenced in January, and aims at eliminating terrorism from the country completely.
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 over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
