At least 50 terrorists were killed in Turkey and northern Syria between Feb. 23 and March 1, the Turkish army said on Friday.
The Turkish General Staff, in a statement, revealed that 35 terrorists were killed in anti-PKK operations in Turkey while six Daesh members and nine members of the PKK-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) were killed as part of the Turkish-led Operation Euphrates Shield, which began last August.
The operation aims to provide security, support U.S.-led coalition forces, and eliminate terrorist presence along Syria's northern border with Turkey.
The operation, which began last summer, relies heavily on Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters, backed by Turkish artillery and air support.
Meanwhile, military sources said, two armed vehicles and 12 buildings belonging to Daesh were destroyed in northern Syria's al-Bab, a city that was liberated from the group's clutches, last week.
Anti-PKK operations in Turkey's eastern provinces of Şırnak, Hakkari, Tunceli, Diyarbakır, Bitlis, Mardin, and Ağrı were still ongoing, the army added.The PKK is listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S., and the EU. It has waged a terror campaign against Turkey for more than 30 years, claiming the lives of more than 40,000 people.
