The so-called “special forces commander” of the PKK terrorist group, Mazlum Demir was killed late Thursday in a joint operation by Turkish Armed Forces and the National Intelligence Organization (MIT) in northern Iraq.
Demir was wanted on red notice by the Ministry of Interior.
Turkey currently battles the PKK terrorist group in northern Iraq and its Syrian affiliate YPG/PYD in northern Syria.
The group constitutes a serious security threat to Turkey.
In its more than 40-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and the European Union, has been responsible for the deaths of 40,000 people, including women and children.
