Turkish Ministry of Defense: 12 RSC terrorists are neutralized in north of Iraq

In the Khakakk area in the north of Iraq, 12 RSC terrorists were neutralized. On Monday, on April 15, the press service of the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey reported.

The Ministry of Defense specified that the militants were eliminated as a result of an air operation.

The department noted that the Turkish Armed Forces will continue the operation until the last terrorist is destroyed.

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).
