A total of 14 terrorists were “neutralized” during an air operation on Thursday in northern Iraq, the Turkish army said on Friday.

Axar.az informs citing AA.

The military generally uses the term "neutralize" to signify that the targets have been killed.

The Turkish General Staff statement also said 13 targets, namely shelters used by PKK terrorists, were destroyed in northern Iraq.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years and has been responsible for the death of nearly 40,000 people.

More than 1,200 Turkish security personnel and civilians, including a number of women and children, have been killed since July 2015 alone when the group resumed its armed campaign against the country.
