The Ministry of National Defense of Turkey announced the neutralization of the six YPG terrorists (Syrian wing of the RSC), who were preparing attacks on the zone of the Euphrates Shield.
The department noted that Turkey continues to fight the PKK/YPG terrorists, the only purpose of which is to “shed blood in the region.”
“six terrorists of the RSC/YPG, who were preparing an attack on the zone of the Euphrates Shield, are neutralized,” the department said.
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).
