Istanbul] Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization claims it has “neutralized” a top official of a Kurdish militant group during a military operation in Syria and Iraq following an attack against the government in Ankara.

The Turkish state news channel reported that Yadin Bulut, or “Rizgar Suvar,” was the group’s leader for money and drug laundering, and had been working with the group since 2015.

Turkey has claimed that the attackers came from Syria.

The latest military operation came after two men with a bomb attacked Turkey’s Interior Ministry in Ankara on the day of the opening of parliament.
