A total of 34 Daesh terrorists were “neutralized” in the Syria's north during the ongoing Turkish-led Operation Euphrates Shield, according to the Turkish military.

The Turkish Armed Forces said on Sunday that Turkish jets destroyed 17 Daesh buildings used as weapon emplacement and shelter in al-Bab, Suflaniyah, Bzagah and Shamaviyah.

34 Daesh terrorists were neutralized in ground clashes while three opposition fighters were wounded, the military said.

The operation focused on capturing al-Bab district of Syria, with intensified land and air attacks, the statement said.

The statement added that on Sunday, a total of 166 Daesh positions had been targeted and besieged.

Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorist in question was either killed or captured.

Turkish explosive ordnance disposal teams have neutralized 2,579 handmade explosives and 43 mines in areas cleared of Daesh since the beginning of Operation Euphrates Shield.
