Turkish security forces killed a wanted PKK terrorist during a counter-terrorism operation in Tunceli province, local officials said Tuesday.

Gendarmerie forces launched an operation in a rural area of Hozat District and killed the terrorist following a clash with members of the terrorist group, the Tunceli governor’s office said in a statement.

The wanted terrorist was identified as Mustafa Seker, codenamed Berhudar-Genco.

Seker was mentioned in the grey category of the Interior Ministry’s list of wanted terrorists, said the statement.

The wanted list is divided into five color-coded categories, with red as the most wanted followed by blue, green, orange and grey.

In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — has been responsible for the deaths of some 40,000 people, including women and children.
