ANKARA

Turkish Interior Ministry said Sunday that three terrorists were neutralized in eastern Bitlis province.

The ministry said security authorities conducted an air-backed operation in Bitlis as part of domestic security operations.
Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu confirmed the neutralization of terrorists with a social media statement.

Operations are underway in the region.
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in statements to imply terrorists in question surrendered, were killed or captured.
