Turkish airstrikes “neutralized” 16 PKK terrorists in a rural part of Cukurca in Turkey’s southeastern Hakkari province on Thursday, the military said on Friday.
In another incident, two other terrorists were shot dead in the southeastern part of Hisar Mountain in Hakkari, the military added.
Turkey's army also said 40 Daesh and six PKK/PYD targets were hit as part of Operation Euphrates Shield in northern Syria.
The PKK and its Syrian offshoot the PYD are both listed as terrorist groups by Turkey although the U.S. and EU only view the PKK as a terrorist organization.
Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in August to rid the north Syrian border area of terrorists. The campaign has seen both Daesh and the PKK/PYD targeted by the Free Syrian Army and Turkish tanks, artillery and aircraft.
