Senior PKK terrorist ‘neutralized’ in northern Iraq

The National Intelligence Organization (MİT) has "neutralized" a senior terrorist responsible for the youth structure of the PKK/KCK terrorist organization in northern Iraq.

According to information shared by security sources on March 4, MİT first determined the current location and activities of Gülsün Silgir ahead of the cross-border operation to catch the terrorist who has carried out out terror acts since 2011 including deceiving young people to join the PKK.
