The Turkish military neutralized six militants of the PKK/YPG terrorist organization in the north of Syria. This was reported on Monday by the press service of the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey.
According to the statement, liquidated terrorists prepared an armed sortie in the zone of the counter -terrorist operation of the Turkish Armed Forces “Source of the World.”
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that since 1984, when the militants of the RSC for the first time had carried out a bloody crime in Turkey, and until March 2020, 7,500 security forces of Turkey and 6,800 civilians were killed at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union introduced PKK to the lists of terrorist organizations.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to settle the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
In recent years, PKK seeks to shift responsibility for bloody crimes in the region to its branches.
In Syria, PKK terrorists are covered by the names Pyd and YPG, and in the last two years they call themselves “Syrian democratic forces.”
In Iran, PKK acts as “Party of Free Life of Kurdistan” (pjak).
