Türkiye's security forces "neutralized" four PKK terrorists near the Turkish border in northern Iraq, the National Defense Ministry said on Saturday.
The terrorists were targeted in the Operation Claw-Lock zone, the ministry said on Twitter.
Turkish authorities use the term "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
Earlier, a Turkish soldier, who was injured on Friday after terrorists opened "harassing fire" in the Operation Claw-Lock zone, succumbed to his injuries at a hospital.
The ministry conveyed condolences to the soldier's family, the Turkish Armed Forces, and the nation.
Türkiye launched Operation Claw-Lock in April to target the PKK terror organization's hideouts in Iraq's northern Metina, Zap, and Avasin-Basyan regions, near the Turkish border.
It was initiated after Operations Claw-Tiger and Claw-Eagle to root out terrorists hiding in northern Iraq and plotting cross-border attacks in Türkiye.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK-listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the U.S., and EU-has been responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children, and infants.
