Turkish fighter jets neutralized six terrorists in an operation in northern Iraq, the country's National Defense Ministry said Friday on Twitter, APA reports citing TASS.

The ministry said six members of the separatist terrorist organization were neutralized in an air operation in the Qandil region of northern Iraq.

It added that counter-terrorism operations in the region would continue without slowing down.

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

PKK terrorists often use northern Iraq to plan cross-border terrorist attacks in Turkey.

The statement did not specify the terrorists' affiliation, but the terrorist PKK has traditionally been active in eastern and southeastern Turkey.
