Turkey Claims Its Forces Neutralized 170 YPG/PKK Members In August

A total of 170 members of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) were “neutralized” by the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) in Turkey, northern Syria and northern Iraq in August, the country’s state-run Anadolu Agency reported citing reports by the TAF.

Turkey-led forces also detained some 253 suspects in the framework of their anti-PKK operations in Turkey. 70 of them remanded in custody.

During the same period, the TAF neutralized some prominent PKK-linked persons including Ibrahim Coban, Baris Oner, C. Sinan Oktulmus, Omer Duran, Vehbi Tas, Deniz Tali and M. Sirin Ozen.

Despite these claims, the TAF and its proxies are still unable to eliminate the YPG insurgency in the northern Syrian area of Afrin captured by Ankara-led forces earlier this year. YPG cells carry out attacks on the TAF and its proxies deployed there on a constant basis.

No problem for me, who gets killed there before the SAA finalises the elimination of them all.
