Six PKK terrorists were neutralized during a security operation in southeastern Turkey’s Sirnak province Friday, the regional governor’s office said.

In a statement, the office said the operation in the province’s Bestler-Dereler region remains ongoing.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply either the terrorist was killed or captured.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- resumed its decades-old armed campaign in July last year.

Since then, PKK terrorist attacks martyred more than 700 security personnel and also claimed the lives of many civilians, including women and children, while nearly 8,000 PKK terrorists were killed in army operations.
