Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces captured the Syrian village of Qundarah Friday from Daesh terrorists as the Operation Euphrates Shield expanded further into northern Syria.
A statement released by the Turkish military said that a total of 271 targets were hit 1195 times by the Turkish army and the FSA while anti-Daesh coalition jets struck two targets of the terror group.
Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield on Aug. 24, aimed at improving security, supporting coalition forces and eliminating the terror threat along its border by using Free Syrian Army fighters backed by Turkish armor, artillery, and jets.
Daesh originally controlled 98 kilometers of territory along the Turkish border.
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan earlier said the reason of the operation was to secure the border region by eliminating all terror organizations.
