2 terrorists 'neutralized' in eastern Turkey

At least two terrorists who were plotting terror attack were "neutralized" in Turkey's eastern Tunceli province, the local governor’s office said on Thursday.

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

The statement by the Tunceli governor’s office did not specify the terror groups involved but Turkey is embroiled in a long-running struggle against the PKK terror group in the area.

According to the statement, the provincial gendarmerie forces carried out a counter-terrorism operation in the rural areas of Mazgirt district.

Operations in the region are ongoing, it added.
