Turkish Air Force killed 11 terrorists in airstrikes carried out on four shelters used by Daesh in Syria’s western Aleppo city on Monday, the military announced on Tuesday.
The airstrikes targeted the Baratah, Dana and Zarzur regions as part of Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield that began in late August to clear Syria's northern border area of terrorists, it said in a statement.
Two Daesh vehicles were also targeted by armed drones in the region.
Separately, Turkish Special Forces' Sgt. 1st Class Halit Topuz, who was wounded during a clash in northern Syria later succumbed to his injures in Turkey's southeastern Gazitantep province Tuesday, the statement added.
