2 PKK terrorists ‘neutralized’ in southeast Turkey

At least two PKK terrorists were "neutralized" in southeastern Mardin province, the Turkish military said in a statement on Thursday.

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

According to the statement, the terrorists were "neutralized" during counter-terror operations in Mardin's Nusaybin district on Wednesday.

The PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years and has been responsible for the death of nearly 40,000 people.
