At least 38 IS terrorists, including a so-called commander were killed in northern Syria in the last 24 hours as part of the ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield, according to a Turkish General Staff statement early Thursday.

Axar.az reports that, Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters backed by the Turkish army destroyed at least 74 IS targets using howitzers, multiple rocket launchers, mortars and tanks, the statement added.

The Turkish army is supporting FSA fighters in liberating Al-Bab, a strategic city for IS, from the terrorist group. Wednesday marks the 135th day since the city was surrounded in order to liberate it.

The Turkey-led Operation Euphrates Shield began in late August to improve security, support coalition forces and eliminate terror threats along the Turkish border using FSA fighters backed by Turkish artillery and jets.
