    Twenty representatives of the Daesh terrorist group were killed in Turkish airstrikes in northern Syria.

    ANKARA (Sputnik) – Twenty Daesh terrorists were killed in Turkish airstrikes in northern Syria, Turkey's military General Staff said in a statement Sunday.

    “At 19:38 on September 10, an operation involving Turkish Air Force's planes was carried out near the Syrian city of Al Tal as part of operation 'Euphrates Shield.' Three Daesh buildings, one motorbike and one car were destroyed and 20 militants were killed,” the statement, obtained by RIA Novosti, said.

    ​Turkey launched a military operation dubbed Euphrates Shield into northern Syria on August 24 in an effort to clear the city of Jarablus on the border with Turkey and the surrounding area from IS, outlawed in Russia and many other countries worldwide. Syrian Kurds and Damascus have accused Ankara of violating the territorial integrity of the country.
