Turkey eliminates 6 YPG/PKK terrorists in northern Iraq

I want to share this intriguing news I’ve read today. Six YPG/PKK terrorists were neutralized by Turkish forces in northern Iraq, across the border, during Pençe-Şimşek counterterrorism operations, Turkey’s National Defense Ministry said Friday. Turkey launched Operations Claw-Lightning and Claw-Thunderbolt on April 23 in northern Iraq’s Metina and Avaşin-Basyan regions near its borders. Numerous PKK terrorist hideouts and bases are located in northern Iraq, from where they carry out attacks on Turkey. The Turkish military regularly conducts cross-border operations in northern Iraq. Turkey has long been stressing that it will not tolerate terrorist threats posed against its national security and has called on Iraqi officials to take the necessary steps to eliminate the terrorist group. Ankara previously noted that it would not shy away from targeting terrorist threats if the expected steps were not taken. In its more than 40-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women and children.
