Turkish jets killed a ISIL extremist in northern Syria as part of Operation Euphrates Shield, the Turkish military announced on Wednesday.

In air attacks targeting ISIL-held buildings in northern Syria, Turkish jets hit 84 targets, the Turkish Armed Forces said in a statement.

The Turkish Armed Forces said that the targets included shelters, defensive positions, and command-and-control facilities.

In addition, 10 targets in the Al-Bab and Qabr al Muqri regions were hit by Turkish warplanes.

Among the targets were nine shelters, one bomb vehicle production plant, and several gun emplacements.

Wednesday marks the 113th day of the operation, which began in late August to improve security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the terror threat along Turkey’s border using Free Syrian Army fighters backed by Turkish armor, artillery, and jets.
