Turkish intelligence ‘neutralizes’ senior PKK terrorist in northern Syria

A senior PKK/YPG terrorist was 'neutralized' in a Turkish intelligence operation in northern Syria, security sources said on Saturday. Trkiye's National Intelligence Organization (MIT) "neutralized" Haydar Demirel, code-named Bager Turk and the terror group's so-called general manager of the Hol province in northern Syria, according to security sources who requested anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media. The terrorist, who had been followed by MIT since 2020, was 'neutralized' while training PKK/YPG members in the northern town of Tal Hamis in Syria. According to the sources, Demirel joined the terror group in 1993, received training from its convicted ringleader Abdullah Ocalan between 1993 and 1994, and then took part in various terrorist activities.
