Turkey claims to have “neutralized” two suspected PKK members in new bombings in Iraq

July 27, 2020

The Turkish government announced on Monday the “neutralization” of two suspected members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in new bombings in northern Iraq as part of Ankara’s operations against the group.

The Ministry of Defense has said the Turkish state news agency Anatolia said the suspects were “neutralized” during an air-assisted operation in the Metina region.

The Turkish government uses the term “neutralized” to refer to suspects who have been killed, captured or turned over to the authorities. Ankara sees them as dead as bombings.

The Iraqi authorities began setting up checkpoints near the Turkish border in early July to limit “fighting” between Ankara and the PKK and “prevent further civilian casualties,” said Dler Farzanda, commander of the border guard. .
