As the country marks the sixth anniversary of the cross-border operation, here's a quick summary of the gains Turkish armed forces made against Daesh and the YPG/PKK in northeastern Syria.
The northern Syrian town of Dabiq held great value for Daesh where it had promised to fight a final, apocalyptic battle against the West.
Turkey's military said not harming civilians is one of its "basic principles." The army was responding to allegations related to its ongoing operation in northern Syria to push Daesh and other terrorist groups away from Turkey's southern border.
The Turkish military says its forces have killed more than 1,300 Daesh members in Syria since Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in August, 2016.
The Turkish military says that 111 Daesh targets were destroyed during the counter-terror operation by the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army.
Raqqa is Daesh's self-proclaimed capital in Syria.
Turkey's foreign minister says the country will remain undeterred in its efforts inside Syria.
At least three police officers were killed and eight others, including civilians, were injured, officials say.
The Free Syrian Army (FSA) has taken control of two northern Syrian villages from Daesh, including one symbolically important to the terrorist group.
Daesh has about 1,200 militants in Dabiq, a village which is symbolically important to the terrorist group.
The offensive comes as the Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) moves towards the Daesh stronghold of Dabiq.
