On August 24, the Turkish army launched Operation Euphrates Shield against the militants of the Daesh, which is outlawed in Russia and many other countries.

Turkish forces, with assistance from Syrian opposition fighters, occupied the city of Jarabulus in northern Syria and are currently conducting its offensive on the Daesh-held city of al-Bab.
