At least two terrorists were neutralized in an air-backed operation in eastern Turkey, the country's Interior Ministry said on Monday, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

In a statement, the ministry said the terrorists were neutralized with their weapons as part of the Operation Eren-11 in the Hizan district of Bitlis province. 

Although the ministry did not name any specific group, Turkish forces have been conducting operations against the PKK terror group in the region.

Launched in January, the anti-terror Operation Eren is named after Eren Bulbul, a 15-year-old killed by PKK terrorists on Aug. 11, 2017.
