Turkish security forces kill 26 terrorists in northern Syria

Turkish security forces killed 26 terrorists in northern Syria, Turkey’s Defense Ministry announced Tuesday.

The terrorists, who were plotting an attack, were killed on Monday in the Ras al-Ain and Tal Abyad regions, the ministry said.

The terrorists’ affiliation was not mentioned, but the YPG/PKK terror group regularly attacks civilians and security forces in the region.

Since 2016, Turkey has launched a trio of successful anti-terror operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable the peaceful settlement of residents: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018) and Peace Spring (2019).

In its more than 40-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK – listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union – has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including children. The YPG is its Syrian offshoot.
