Turkish aid trucks began arriving in the northern Syrian city of Jarabulus on Friday following its capture from Daesh, a security official said.

The Turkish Red Crescent started distributing food after landmines and other explosives had been cleared from the border between Karkamis in Turkey and Jarabulus.

Speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking with the media, the official told Anadolu Agency that the agency handed out supplies for 5,000 people.

The official added that the Turkish Armed Forces and aircraft from the U.S.-led international coalition were continuing operations against Daesh in the city.
