Turkish security forces have eliminated 18 terrorists in northern Syria and Iraq in the past three days, Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said Wednesday.
Speaking at an iftar dinner in Kayseri province, Akar underlined Türkiye’s struggle against terrorism and said that the fight against terror continues resolutely.
Akar also highlighted that members have been increasingly fleeing the terrorist organization.
“Let alone the terrorists themselves, the organization is dying,” he added.
A significant number of suspected terrorists have begun to flee the PKK and surrender, but many terrorists lack the courage to leave the group out of fear of being severely reprimanded if caught.
Akar continued to say that the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) were doing everything to protect the country’s borders and its people.
