According to the ministry information, cited by the Anadolu news agency, 14 terrorists were eliminated, while 13 others surrendered between July 31 and August 7.
The Turkish security forces carried out 1,518 counterterrorism operations during this period of time, and arrested 150 individuals for aiding the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), listed by Ankara as a terrorist organization.
The tensions between Turkey and Kurdish militant groups seeking independence escalated in July 2015, leading to frequent acts of terror by the PKK and regular anti-PKK operations by the Turkish government.
The Turkish security forces have been conducting counterterrorism operations against the PKK and the Daesh terror group on a regular basis. The operations also target the FETO, as Ankara accused Gulen of being behind the July 2016 failed military coup in Turkey.
