A Turkish soldier was killed during a clash with PKK militants in southeastern Şırnak province on May 6, the country’s Defense Ministry said in a statement.
The statement added that air-supported operations in the area are ongoing.
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
On May 5 two Turkish soldiers were also killed in Şırnak during a clash with PKK militants.
