Two Turkish soldiers were killed and eight others were wounded on March 16 in a clash during operations into northern Iraq, Turkey’s defense ministry said.
Six militants, including a woman, were “neutralized” during the operations, the ministry said in a statement. The Turkish army uses the term neutralize when it has killed, captured or wounded militants.
The PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States, the European Union, has waged a three-decade war in Turkey’s southeast that has killed about 40,000 people.
