"There is no stopping until the last terrorist is neutralized. The terrorists are doing everything to confuse international public opinion. Turks and Kurds are brothers," [Defense Minister Hulusi Akar] said.

Akar said the fight against terrorism is ongoing without making any concessions, adding that they are "determined to finish it."

"The Turkish Armed Forces are continuing their struggle day and night. Our sphere of influence has expanded and is expanding. We have to work harder than ever to fulfill our responsibilities to our people," the minister added.
In its more than 35-year terror campaign against Türkiye, the PKK, listed as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the U.S. and the European Union, has been responsible for the deaths of at least 40,000 people, including women, children and infants.

"Neutralized" is a term used by the Turkish military and officials to indicate terrorists were either killed, wounded, or captured. The ministry ranks those included on the list in five color-coded categories from red (most wanted) to blue, green, orange and grey.
