Turkish security forces neutralized at least seven YPG members in northern Syria, the National Defense Ministry said on Sunday.
"Two YPG terrorists, who opened harassing fire in Operation Euphrates Shield area, and five YPG terrorists, who were attempting to infiltrate the Operation Peace Spring zone, were neutralized by our heroic command," the ministry said in a tweet.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralize" to imply the terrorists in question surrendered or were killed or captured.
Since 2016, Turkey has launched successful anti-terrorist operations across its border in northern Syria to prevent the formation of a terror corridor and enable peaceful settlement by locals: Euphrates Shield (2016), Olive Branch (2018), Peace Spring (2019) and Spring Shield (2020).
