Turkish Air Force destroyed 2 terrorists in north of Iraq

Turkish Air Force neutralized two RSC terrorists in the north of Iraq.

“Air blow to the militants was inflicted in the Iraqi district of Avashin,” the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey said in a statement.

The defense department emphasized the determination to eliminate the threat of terrorism in the region.

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, tens of thousands of security forces and civilians of Turkey died 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 hiding behind the names of 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).
