Turkish Armed Forces neutralized three militants of the PKK terrorist organization in the north of Iraq. This was reported on Monday in the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey.
The militants were destroyed in the area of the anti-terrorist operation of Pençe-Kielit and in the Hakurk area
Turkish Armed Forces will continue to wage a decisive struggle against terrorists in the north of Iraq, the defense department said.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan previously stated that since 1984, when the militants of the RSC for the first time carried out a terrorist attack in Turkey, thousands of employees of Turkish security forces, military and civilians died at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union introduced RKK to the lists of terrorist organizations.
In recent years, the RSC seeks to shift responsibility for bloody crimes in the region to its branches.
In Syria, the RKK terrorists are covered by the names Pyd and YPG, and in the last two years they call themselves “Syrian democratic forces.”
In Iran, RSC acts as “Party of Free Life of Kurdistan” (pjak).
