Turkish Armed Forces neutralized 19 terrorists in Iraq and Syria

The Turkish military neutralized 11 members of the Red Army/YPG terrorist organization in the northern regions of Iraq and Syria. This is stated in the message of the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey.

According to the statement, 15 militants were neutralized in the north of Iraq, four more terrorists were neutralized in the north of Syria.

The department emphasized that the Turkish Armed Forces will continue the uncompromising struggle with terrorists.

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).
