As part of the ongoing Euphrates Shield Operation, the Turkish military neutralizes 22 Daesh terrorists and destroys 272 Daesh positions in northern Syria in the past 24 hours
Since the launch of the operation, 3,282 handmade explosives and 55 mines have been neutralized under controlled conditions.
The Turkish-led operation, aided by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), was launched in late August to improve security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the terror threat along Turkey’s border.
Friday marks the 157th day of the operation, backed by Turkish artillery and jets. The Euphrates Shield Operation has cleared a total of 227 residential areas and 1,875 square kilometers of land along northern Syria’s Azaz to Jarabulus corridor running parallel to the Turkish frontier.
