8 PKK militiamen neutralized in northern Syria

Turkey's National Defense Ministry on Wednesday (April 8) said a total of eight PKK militiamen were "neutralized" in northern Syria.

In a Twitter post, the ministry said commando units struck a group of four terrorists who opened harassment fire on security forces in the area, earlier cleared by Turkey’s Euphrates Shield Operation.

It added that four others, preparing to perform an act of terror, were neutralized in the region, which was rid of terrorism following Turkey’s Operation Olive Branch, another counter-terrorism operation previously held by the country.

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

Earlier in April, Turkish security forces neutralized almost 65 PKK militiamen in northern Syria.

In 2016-2019, Turkey launched a trio of successful anti-terrorist operations across its border in 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).
