14 terrorists neutralized by Turkish forces during spring, summer
Authorities often use the word "neutralized" in statements to imply terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
In a Twitter post, the ministry said that 12 of the terrorists were killed and two were captured alive.
A total of 1,720 anti-terror operations were conducted by security forces across the country during the spring and summer seasons, the ministry said.
The anti-terror operations continued decisively, it added.
