Shafaq News/ A founder of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), Ali Haydar Kaytan, has been reportedly killed in a Turkish operations in the Kurdistan Region, Turkish "Anadolu" Agency quoted senior Turkish officers. 

Kaytan, code-named Fuat, was once deemed the second-in-command by the PKK imprisoned ringleader Abdullah Ocalan. 

According to the official Turkish news agency, Kaytan was "neutralized in what is described as one of the longest-running counter-terrorism operations." 

"Kaytan regularly changes his location, but the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) conducted an extensive search operation for Kaytan backed by drones," Anadolu said, "in a joint operation by the MIT and Turkish forces in northern Iraq, a number of terrorists were neutralized." 

Citing intelligence reports from the field, Anadolu said that Kaytan was among those who perished in the attack.
