Two PKK were “neutralized” by artillery and mortar fire on Thursday in southeastern Turkey's Hakkari province, the military said.

According to a briefing by the Turkish General Staff, the military carried out artillery and mortar strikes in the Kiziltepe region of rural Derecik town.

The military said two terrorists were neutralized in the attack, which was confirmed in intercepted PKK radio communications.

Since Dec. 4, a total of 540 terrorists have been neutralized in operations conducted in Hakkari province.

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