The Turkish army hit 70 PKK/PYD and 52 Daesh terrorist targets in the past 24 hours in counter-terror operations as part of Operation Euphrates Shield in northern Syria, the military said on Saturday.
At least two Daesh terrorists were killed and a vehicle destroyed in an airstrike carried out by U.S.-led coalition forces, the Turkish General Staff said.
Saturday's statement said five Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters were wounded during an opposition forces' offensive to retake two villages in the Mare district, northwest of Al-Bab.
The statement also noted that Turkish jets did not carry out any airstrikes but are positioned ready to strike any threats that may come up.
The PKK/PYD terrorist group attacked FSA fighters in south of Jarablus city, killing two people, the statement added.
The PKK and its Syrian offshoot the PYD are both listed as terrorist groups by Turkey although the U.S. and EU only view the PKK as a terrorist organization.
Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in late August to rid the north Syrian border area of terrorists. The campaign has seen both Daesh and the PKK/PYD targeted by the FSA plus Turkish tanks, artillery and aircraft.
