Turkish Jets Pound almost 100 Islamic States (Daesh) Targets in Syria

turkish-jetsTurkish jets have pounded on 94 Islamic State (Daesh) and 9 PKK/PYD targets in northern Syria early Thursday as Operation Euphrates Shield enters 65th day.

Operation Euphrates Shield was launched late in August with aim to clear the northern Syria border of terrorists.

The military operation has seen both Islamic State and PKK/PYD terrorists groups being targeted by the opposition Free Syrian Army plus Turkish tanks, artillery and aircraft.

The PKK and its Syrian offshoot, the PYD, are both listed as terrorist groups by Turkey although the U.S. and EU only view the PKK as a terrorist organization.

According to Turkish military sources, the opposition forces managed to seize and take control of the Jabal Khirbat al-Kanisah area, northwest of Aleppo.

The military operation since it was launched has seen hundreds of terrorists from either group killed and scored injured.

The army through a statement also noted 31 mines and almost 1,360 improvised explosive devices had been neutralized in liberated areas since the beginning of Operation Euphrates Shield.
