Turkish fighter jets “neutralized” two PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the Turkish Defense Ministry said on Tuesday.

Axar.az reports citing Turkish media.

In a Twitter post, the ministry said two PKK terrorists were “neutralized” in the airstrikes carried out in Metina region, in coordination with the ongoing Operation Claw -- Turkey’s anti-terror operation against the PKK.

The airstrikes also destroyed weapon emplacements and shelters used by the PKK terrorists, the ministry said.

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

On May 27, Turkey launched Operation Claw against the PKK in northern Iraq's Hakurk region. To date the ongoing offensive has neutralized dozens of terrorists.

PKK terrorists often use northern Iraq as a base to plan cross-border terror attacks in Turkey.

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, children, and infants.
