Turkish soldiers “neutralized” three Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) fighters in northern Syria, the Turkish state media outlet Anadolu Agency reported Thursday.
The Turkish military uses the term “neutralized” to refer to enemy combatants who are killed or captured. The fighting took place in parts of northern Syria controlled by the Turkish military and its Syrian rebel allies. Two of the PKK fighters attempted to infiltrate Turkish territory near al-Bab while the other was engaged between the cities of Ain Issa and Tal Tamr, according to Anadolu Agency. Both areas are close to the Turkish-Syrian border.
