Turkish security forces “neutralized” two PKK/YPG terrorists in northern Syria, the country’s National Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

The terrorists, who were plotting an attack on Turkish soldiers, were neutralized in the Operation Peace Spring zone, the ministry said in a statement.

Turkish authorities use the term "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered, or were killed or captured.

Since 2016, Ankara has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).

In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the US, and EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of more than 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants. The YPG is the terrorist PKK's Syrian branch.
