The Turkish military said in a statement on early Saturday that 46 Daesh terrorists were "neutralized" and 16 others were injured in northern Syria in the past 24 hours as part of the Turkey-backed Operation Euphrates Shield.
Turkish fighter jets also hit 21 Daesh targets, including 17 buildings used as terror-shelters and two armed vehicles, in Al Bab, Bzagah and Qabasin regions according to the statement.
The Turkish army is supporting Free Syrian Army fighters in their fight to liberate Al-Bab from the terrorist group.
Operation Euphrates Shield began on August 24, 2016 to tighten border security, eliminate the terror threat along Turkish borders, and support opposition forces in Syria.
The Free Syrian Army is backed by Turkish artillery and jets as a part of the operation.
Since the start of the operation, a total of 227 residential areas and 1,875 square kilometers (724 square miles) of land had been secured along northern Syria's Azaz to Jarabulus corridor that runs parallel to the Turkish frontier, the statement read.
The Turkish Air Force had hit 1,237 targets and neutralized more than 3,044 improvised explosive devices and 43 land mines under controlled conditions, the statement added.
