A Turkish soldier was killed and three others were injured by Daesh terrorists during the ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield in northern Syria's al-Bab on Sunday.
At least 42 Daesh terrorists were hit by the Turkish military in the past 24 hours in al-Bab, according to a Turkish General Staff statement released early Sunday.
In addition, 174 Daesh targets, including the terror group's shelters, headquarters, defense positions and vehicles were hit by Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters with Turkish Land Forces' support, the statement said.
Turkish fighter jets also destroyed 33 buildings that were used as hideouts.
The Turkish army is supporting FSA fighters in liberating Al-Bab, a strategic city for Daesh, from the terrorist group. Sunday marks the 173rd day since the city was surrounded in order to liberate it.
The Turkey-led Operation Euphrates Shield began in late August to improve security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the terror threat along the Turkish border using FSA fighters backed by Turkish artillery and jets.
