'37 Daesh terrorists killed' in northern Syria
At least 37 Daesh terrorists, including three high-ranking group members, were killed in northern Syria in the last 24 hours as part of the ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield, according to a Turkish General Staff statement released on Saturday, Anadolu reported.
Turkish Air force also hit 35 Daesh targets in Syria’s Al-Bab region, including 18 weapons pits, five control points, seven shelters, two headquarters and three vehicles used by the terrorists.
The Turkish army is supporting Free Syrian Army fighters in liberating Al-Bab, a strategic city for Daesh, from the terrorist group.
The Turkey-led Operation Euphrates Shield began in late August to improve security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the terror threat along the Turkish border using FSA fighters backed by Turkish artillery and jets.
