7 PKK members have been killed in an airstrike in the Asos region of northern Iraq, Turkish Defense Ministry said in a statement on Friday.

"With the coordinated work of the Turkish Armed Forces and National Intelligence Organization (MIT), 7 PKK members, who were identified by means of reconnaissance and surveillance in the Asos region of northern Iraq, were neutralized in an airstrike," the statement said.

Turkish Defense Ministry uses the word "neutralized" in its statements instead of "killed", "captured" or "surrendered".

The ongoing conflict between Turkey and PKK has resulted in nearly forty thousand deaths since 1984 when PKK waged an insurgency against Turkish State. (ILKHA)
