ANKARA, Thirty-three Daesh militants were killed after targets belonging to them were hit by Turkish army in Al-Bab of northern Syria in last 24 hours, Turkish General Staff said.

According to the Turkish army, 220 targets belonging to the terrorists have been shelled.

A total of 3680 improvised explosive devices and 55 mines have been destroyed since the beginning of the operation, the military added.

The Turkish Armed Forces launched the Euphrates Shield Operation last August against both Daesh and the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), the military wing of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD).

Turkey regards the YPG and the PYD as terrorist organizations due to their links to the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

Meanwhile, Turkish police on Sunday detained at least 100 suspected members of Daesh in anti-terror raids carried out in six provinces, including Ankara, Istanbul, Adiyaman, Konya, Manisa, Samsun, and Gaziantep, Anadolu Agency reported.

Turkish police detained 60 suspects in the capital Ankara’s Sincan, Cubuk, Yenimahalle and Mamak districts, who were mainly foreign nationals. Thirty suspected Daesh terrorists were detained in simultaneous counter-terror operations in Konya province, and 10 others were detained in Adiyaman province.
