Turkey 'neutralizes' 210 PKK terrorists in October

A total of 210 PKK terrorists, including so-called senior operatives targeting civilians, in their bid to disrupt peace in Turkey have been "neutralized" as part of anti-terror operations across the country and abroad in October.

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

Turkish Armed Forces, Security General Directorate, General Command of Gendarmerie and National Intelligence Service resolutely continue to chase terrorist organizations that try to disturb the peace and brotherhood in the country.

According to information compiled by Anadolu Agency, 10 security officers were martyred and one civilian was killed during the attacks by YPG/PKK between Oct. 1 and Oct. 31.

During the attacks, one civilian was killed, while five security officers and three civilians were injured.

Security forces destroyed shelters and depots of terrorists, mainly in Turkey's eastern and southeastern provinces.

A total of 687 suspects were arrested and 125 of them remanded in custody in October.
