GAZIANTEP, Aug. 24 (MNA) – The footage taken from Karkamis district of the Turkey's Gaziantep province shows that Turkish fighter jets and howitzers early Wednesday bombed Daesh targets in Jarabulus, Syria.

Turkish Armed Forces and air forces belonging to the US-led international coalition launched an operation against ISIL in an effort to clear the Syrian city of Jarabulus from the terror group, Turkish officials told Anadolu Agency. ISIL targets were "neutralized" as Turkish forces used intense artillery fire against the militants in Jarabulus in a retaliatory strike, officials said. The operation, which began at around 4 a.m. local time is aimed at clearing the Turkish border of terrorist groups, helping to enhance border security and supporting the territorial integrity of Syria, officials said, adding that preventing a new flow of migrants and delivering aid to the region’s civilian population in need are also among the goals.
