Turkish special forces neutralized five PKK terrorists in northern Iraq as part of Operation Pençe-Kaplan.
This was stated on Wednesday, May 4, in a message from the Turkish Ministry of Defense on Twitter.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that since 1984, when the PKK militants first carried out a bloody crime in Turkey and until March 2020, 7,500 members of the Turkish security forces and 6,800 civilians have died at the hands of this bloody organization.
The United States and the European Union have designated the PKK as a terrorist organization.
Despite Ankara’s attempts to find ways to resolve the situation, the PKK terrorist organization has resumed armed attacks since July 2015.
In recent years, the PKK has sought to shift responsibility for the bloody crimes in the region to its offshoots.
In Syria, PKK terrorists cover themselves with the names PYD and YPG, and in the last two years they have called themselves the “Syrian Democratic Forces”.
In Iran, the PKK operates as the Kurdistan Free Life Party (PJAK).
