ERZURUM, Turkey

Turkish security forces neutralized a total of 1,090 YPG/PKK terrorists both in Turkey and abroad last month, according to data compiled by Anadolu Agency.

Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.

The counter-terrorism operations were jointly carried out by the country’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT), Turkish Armed Forces, gendarmerie and police forces in eastern and southeastern Turkey and abroad, targeting YPG/PKK terrorists.
