A total of 26 ISIS terrorists, including planners for the group, were “neutralized” in the northern Syrian city of Al-Bab and Daglabash during the ongoing Turkish-led Operation Euphrates Shield, according to the Turkish military.
The Turkish Armed Forces said on Friday that 17 ISIS targets, including 13 defensive positions and weapon pits, an armed vehicle, and three garages used to prepare bomb vehicles, were destroyed as part of air operations.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorist in question was either killed or captured.
Also Free Syrian Army soldiers hit 222 ISIS targets during the operations, and defensive positions, shelters, command and control centers, weapons, and cars were annihilated.
On Thursday one Turkish Armed Forces soldier was martyred and five were wounded in a Daesh attack in the village of Al-Azraq, in the Aleppo province.
Russia federation warplanes conducted three air operations on ISIS targets in southern Al-Bab on Thursday.
