The Turkish military hit 157 Daesh terrorist targets in northern Syria destroying shelters, defensive positions, command and control facilities, weapons and vehicles used by the terrorists, a military statement said on Tuesday.
The military also carried out airstrikes in the regions of al-Bab and Bzaghah, destroying 28 Daesh terrorist targets including six shelters, two buildings used as ammunition stores, three headquarters, three control points, two plants producing bomb vehicles, three garage buildings for armed vehicles and several weapon pits.
Turkey's counterterrorism operation is part of the ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield launched in late August to ensure a terror-free corridor over Turkey's southern border with Syria. The Turkish military supports coalition forces with armor, artillery, and jets in order to eliminate terrorist threats along its borders. Currently terrorist groups such as the PYD-YPG, PKK's Syrian affiliate, and Daesh are active in Northern Syria.
