The terrorists were "neutralized" during Operation Claw-Eagle 2, launched on Wednesday in the Gara region.

Earlier, the ministry said Turkish security forces destroyed more than 50 terror targets during the campaign.

Turkey launched Operation Claw-Eagle 2 in line with its right to self-defense arising from international law to prevent the PKK/KCK's and other terror groups' efforts to re-establish their positions used to carry out terrorist attacks against Turkey. The operation is successfully going on, the ministry said.

PKK terrorists often use northern Iraq as a base to plan cross-border terrorist attacks on Turkey.

Turkey's operations Claw-Tiger and Claw-Eagle were launched last June to ensure Turkish people and borders' safety by neutralizing the PKK threat and other terrorist groups that often use northern Iraq to plan cross-border attacks.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the US, and the EU – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
