As part of the ‘Shield of the Euphrates’ operation, Turkish armed forces carried out strikes on 329 facilities of the ‘Islamic State’ terrorist group (aka IS, ISIL, ISIS or Daesh) in northern Syria, the Turkish General Staff reported on February 2.

Fifty-one terrorists were neutralized during the operation held on February 1.

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.

The operation was dubbed the Shield of the Euphrates. 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 IS, YPG and PYD are the most active terrorist groups in Syria.
