At least two PKK/PYD-YPG terrorists have been neutralized during counter-terrorism operations in southeastern Turkey, according to the military on Wednesday.

Axar.az informs citing AA.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

Border security forces neutralized two terror group members during the counter-terrorism operation in Nusaybin, a district of southeastern Mardin province, General Staff said in a statement on its official website.

The military also said 250 rounds of heavy machinery guns and various equipments were searched in southeastern Hakkari's Semdinli district.

Listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU, the PKK has waged a wide-ranging terror campaign against the Turkish state since the mid-1980s, in which an estimated 40,000 people have been killed.
