Turkish Forces Kill 20 PKK/PYD & Daesh Terrorists

Turkish Forces on Saturday morning killed 20 terrorists in northern Syria.

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.

As part of Operation Euphrates Shield launched on Aug. 24, Turkey has supported FSA troops with Special Forces, artillery, tanks and airstrikes in a bid to rid the border area of terrorists.
