The Turkish army "neutralized" 10 YPG/PKK militiamen in northern Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Saturday (March 14).
In a Twitter post, the ministry said eight PKK/YPG terrorists, who were found plotting attacks on Turkish troops in the Operation Peace Spring area, as well as other two PKK/YPG terrorists attempting to infiltrate the Operation Euphrates Shield area were “neutralized.”
Turkish authorities generally use the word "neutralized" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
In 2016-2019, Turkey launched a trio of successful anti-terrorist operations across its border into northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable peaceful settlement by locals: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
