The Islamic State group has been targeted by Turkish warplanes and artillery in Syria on Monday. The strike has killed 22 of the group’s militants. On the other hand, Russian aircraft hit jihadists near the Islamic State-controlled town of al-Bab, according to Turkey’s military statement shared on Monday.
In a round-up of its military operations over the past 24 hours in support of rebels in northern Syria, the army said the Russian aircraft destroyed Islamic State targets in the area of Dayr Kak, 8 km (5 miles) southwest of al-Bab.
The Turkish military operation, named as ‘Euphrates Shield’, was launched some four months back to dispel Islamic State militants from the border region and in recent weeks the forces have been besieging the town of al-Bab.
