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.
