The terrorists were neutralized in the Metina region in an air strike, the ministry said on Twitter, adding that operations would continue.
Turkish authorities often use the term “neutralized” to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union.
It has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.
The YPG is the PKK’s Syrian offshoot.
