In a statement, Turkish General Staff said the military killed 12 PKK/PYD and eight Daesh terrorists in northern Syria without giving the exact location.

Turkish backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) had been battling militants around Al-Bab and Al-Rai to the northeast of Aleppo.

Turkish military artillery also struck 88 Daesh and six PKK/PYD targets, the statement added.
