“Five PKK/YPG members, who were preparing for an attack in the area of Operation Peace Spring, were neutralized by our commandos,” the statement said.
Turkish Defense Ministry uses the word “neutralized” in its statements instead of “killed”, ”captured” or “surrendered”.
Operation Peace Spring by the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF), was a cross-border military operation conducted by the Turkish military and the Syrian National Army (SNA) against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in northern Syria.
