3,149 militants neutralized in Afrin operation: Turkish military

A total of 3,149 People’s Protection Units (YPG) militants have been “neutralized” since the start of “Operation Olive Branch” in Syria’s northwestern Afrin region, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement on March 9.

Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply the militants in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
