ANKARA

Turkey neutralized more than 200 terrorists during anti-terror operations at home and abroad in December, Deputy Interior Minister Ismail Catakli said Friday.

Turkish security forces neutralized 144 YPG/PKK terrorists, including one on the orange list and three on the grey list, during Operation Kiran in southeast, said Catakli.

The list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange and gray.

Authorities often use the word “neutralized” in statements to imply terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
