Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) captured Syrian towns of Dabiq and Soran from Daish on Sunday, Anadolu Agency reported.
According to FSA sources, both towns have been cleared from Daish terrorists as part of Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield.
The sources added that the most difficult stage of the operation has been completed and that the FSA is trying to defuse bomb set-ups used by Daish terrorists.
Turkish airstrikes continued to hit Daish terrorist positions in the area as the FSA advanced in the Daish held village of Dabiq in northwestern Syria on Saturday.
Dabiq is crucial for Daish as its symphatizers believe that the town is sacred and a doomsday war will one day be fought there with "infidels." According to the FSA, Daish terrorists will be devastated once the town is captured.— DAILY SABAH (@DailySabah) October 16, 2016
Daish has stationed around 1,200 of its terrorists there said the Observatory, a Britain-based war monitor.
Turkey launched Operation Euphrates Shield in cooperation with the FSA on Aug. 24 to clear its southern border of Daish terrorists and liberate northern Syrian towns from the terrorist group, while preventing PKK's Syrian wing PYD / YPG to replace Daish in these areas. In less than a day, the FSA, backed by the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) liberated Jarablus and continued marching from the east and the west.
