Turkish intelligence Wednesday eliminated a so-called leader of the PKK/YPG terror group in northeastern Syria, according to security sources, who added that he was wanted by Interpol with a red notice.

Ali Dincer, the so-called leader of Al-Jazira region, was eliminated by Türkiye’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT) in an intelligence-based operation in the Qamishli region of Syria, sources said on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to the media.

Dincer had joined the PKK in 1991 and was personally involved in numerous violent acts orchestrated by the group. His elimination marks a significant achievement in the ongoing efforts to combat the PKK/YPG’s terrorist activities.

The PKK, recognized as a terrorist organization by Türkiye, the U.S. and the EU, is responsible for the deaths of over 40,000 people, including women, children and babies, during its nearly 40-year campaign of terror against Türkiye. YPG is PKK’s Syrian offshore.
