The Turkish Armed Forces have neutralized 52 YPG terrorists (Syrian wing of the PKK – ed.) East and West of the Euphrates River in northern Syria.
This was announced on Friday, May 13 at the Ministry of National Defense of Turkey.
Attacks on 60 terrorist targets were carried out in response to the shelling of the Karkamysh border region and the Kepryubaty border post, as a result of which a serviceman was killed, three servicemen and one woman were injured.
According to the agency, the militants first fired at the settlement, after which they struck at the frontier post.
In response, the Shtorm self-propelled guns and attack drones were involved.
Attacks on terrorists in the region continue.
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).
