Turkish security forces neutralized five YPG/PKK militiamen in northwestern Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Thursday (March 26).

"Five PKK/YPG terrorists who were found to be preparing an attack in the Operation Euphrates Shield region, were successfully neutralized in successful operations by our heroic commandos," the ministry said on Twitter.

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

It added that the operations will continue uninterrupted.

During the previous 12 days, the Turkish army neutralized 34 YPG/PKK militiamen in northern Syria.

Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terrorist operations across its border into northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable peaceful settlement by locals: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), and Peace Spring (2019).
