A joint operation by Turkish security forces and the country’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT) has eliminated the PKK terrorist group’s so-called Makhmour head Hasan Adır in northern Iraq, security sources said Friday. Adır, codenamed “Salih Cizre,” was on a red notice, meaning he was among the country’s most-wanted terrorists. He was targeted at a point near the Makhmour camp controlled by the PKK terrorists. Turkish forces recently killed Selman Bozkır, codenamed “Doctor Hüseyin,” who was the joint regional head of the PKK in the Makhmour region. Announcing the operation, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that Turkey would not allow the “treacherous and separatist organization” to use Iraq’s Makhmour district as an “incubation center” for terrorism. “We will continue to eradicate terrorism at its source,” he stressed.
