"WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE OUTCOME OF THE OPERATION LATER"

“We started joint operation with Iran against PKK on eastern border at 08.00 a.m. local time [0500GMT],” Süleyman Soylu said in the Mediterranean city of Antalya. “We will announce the outcome of the operation later. We will eliminate [terrorist PKK]," Soylu added.
