Russia and the US have been informed about the beginning of Turkey’s military operations in Syria, Fikri Isik, Turkish national defense minister, said, the Turkish Milliyet newspaper wrote Aug. 25 citing NTV channel.

According to the minister, later Iran was also informed about the military operations.

"Ankara failed to inform Damascus about the beginning of military operations because of the lack of relations with the Syrian government," Isik said.

On Aug. 24 morning, the Turkish Air Force with the support of the coalition aircraft launched an operation to liberate the city of Jarabulus from the IS militants in northern Syria, near Aleppo city.

The operation was carried out under the name “Shield of the Euphrates.”

Earlier, it was reported that Turkish tanks entered Syria. Syria has been suffering from an armed conflict since March 2011, which, according to the UN, has so far claimed over 500,000 lives.

Militants from various armed groups are confronting the Syrian government troops. The “Islamic State” (IS, ISIL, ISIS or Daesh) is the most active terrorist group in Syria.
