Turkish forces have killed 18 Daesh terrorists during operations in northern Syria over the past 24 hours.

According to a statement released by the Turkish army on Sunday, some 130 terrorist targets, including hideouts, defense positions, headquarters, weapons and vehicles were also shelled in the operations.

Turkish fighter planes also carried out raids against various terrorist-held positions in al-Bab, destroying ammunition depots, checkpoints, tunnels and nine buildings.

Earlier in the month, Russia announced that Turkish jets had joined the anti-Daesh operations in Syria’s al-Bab.

The statement noted that the US-led coalition also engaged in airstrikes in the region, destroying terrorist infrastructure.
