Gumushane Governor Okay Memis told Anadolu Agency that Baris Oner, codenamed “Turk Tarik”, was found dead in Kurtun district of Gumushane province following an anti-terror operation conducted at 06.00 a.m. local time (0300GMT).

Oner was in the red category of Turkish Interior Ministry's wanted terrorist list.

The wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted, followed by blue, green, orange and lastly grey.

Another terrorist codenamed “Sorej” -- who was also killed during the operation -- was of Iranian origin, Memis said.

The suspects were rounded up in Bestler-Dereler region of the central district after drones spotted the suspects.
