The Turkish army "neutralized" two YPG/PKK militiamen attempting to infiltrate into northern Syrian territories, the National Defense Ministry said on Tuesday (March 17).

“Our heroic commandos neutralized two separatist YPG/PKK terrorists trying to infiltrate into the area of the Operation Euphrates Shield region,” the ministry said on Twitter.

The ministry further affirmed its determination to "continue operations to sustain the peace and security in the region."

Turkish authorities generally use the word "neutralized" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

On Saturday and Monday, the Turkish army neutralized 21 YPG/PKK militiamen in northern Syria.

Since 2016, Turkey and Syrian National Army (SNA) has launched a trio of successful operations across its border into northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor, enable peaceful settlement by locals, and protect civilians from attacks: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018) and Peace Spring (2019).
