Euphrates Shield, which was launched on August 24, aims at improving security, supporting coalition forces, supporting Syria’s territorial integrity and eliminating the terror threat along Turkey’s border with Syria.

Warplanes and artillery have struck targets in Syria, killing 22 members of Daesh, while Russian aircraft hit targets in the Daesh-controlled town of al-Bab, the Turkish military said on Monday.

Ankara launched Operation Euphrates Shield, more than four months ago to drive Daesh away from its borders. The liberation of the northern Syrian towns of Jarablus and Dabiq from Daesh proved to be key successes in the operation.

A statement from the military said that Turkish forces destroyed 111 Daesh targets.
