At least 42 Daesh terrorists were “neutralized” in northern Syria in the last 24 hours as part of the ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield, according to a Turkish General Staff statement released early Sunday.
Turkish authorities often use the word “neutralized” in their statements to imply the terrorist in question was either killed or captured.
In addition, 174 Daesh targets, including the terror group’s shelters, headquarters, defense positions and vehicles were hit by Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters with Turkish Land Forces’ support, the statement said.
Turkish fighter jets also destroyed 33 buildings that were used as hideouts.
The Turkish army is supporting FSA fighters in liberating Al-Bab, a strategic city for Daesh, from the terrorist group. Sunday marks the 173rd day since the city was surrounded in order to liberate it.
