3 PKK terrorists neutralized in eastern Turkey

Turkish forces "neutralized" three PKK terrorists amid airstrikes in eastern Turkey, the country's National Defense Ministry said Saturday, ONA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

The terrorists were neutralized in Van province in airstrikes carried out in its Caldiran district, the ministry said on Twitter.

Turkish authorities often use the term "neutralized" in their statements to imply terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women and children.
