2 PKK terrorists neutralized by security forces in eastern Turkey

At least two were neutralized in the eastern province, the Interior Ministry said on Thursday.

The terrorists were neutralized during air-assisted carried out in the Çaldıran district.

Turkish authorities often use the term "neutralized" in their statements to imply terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK -- listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU -- has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women and children.
