Turkish jets "neutralized" eight PKK terrorists in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry announced on Saturday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

The terrorists were neutralized in the Metina region in an air strike, the ministry said on Twitter, adding that operations would continue.

Turkish authorities often use the term "neutralized" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

YPG/PKK terrorists often seek shelter in northern Iraq, just across the Turkish border, to plan terrorist attacks in Turkey.
