On the 61st day of Operation Euphrates Shield, launched in northern Syria on Aug. 24 by the Turkey-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA), 11 Daesh terrorists and three Democratic Union Party (PYD)/PKK terrorists were killed, the military said on Sunday.
FSA fighters with the support of the Turkish military continued to attack the PYD/PKK-held Shaykh Isa, Umm Housh and Harbul villages, which are south of the FSA-held town of Marea.
Four FSA fighters were killed and 20 others were wounded in Saturday's clashes with Daesh and PKK/PYD terrorists, the statement said.
Turkish jets destroyed four buildings used as defensive outposts of the Daesh terror group in the village of al-Burj south of the Syrian town of Akhtarin, controlled by the FSA.
Meanwhile, coalition forces destroyed artillery in the area of Kar Kalbayn in one airstrike.
Operation Euphrates Shield, which began on Aug. 24 backed by the Turkish Armed Forces, is aimed to bolster border security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the threat posed by terror organizations, especially Daesh.
