ANKARA (Xinhua) – Turkish forces killed 8 members of Syria’s Kurdish so-called People’s Protection Units (YPG) in northern Syria, Turkey’s Defense Ministry said on Wednesday. The YPG members were “neutralized” when they were allegely in preparation for an “attack” against Turkish forces in northern Syria, the Turkish ministry claimed in a tweet. Turkish authorities often use the term “neutralized” to imply “terrorists” killed, wounded, or captured in security operations. The cross-border attacks have angered Syria and Iraq who describe the incursions as a violation of their sovereignty.
