ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Turkish warplanes struck Islamic State targets in Syria, destroying 40 of them, including shelters, buildings and vehicles, Turkey's military said in a statement on Thursday (January 12). In recent weeks, Turkish forces have been besieging the town of al-Bab, north of Aleppo, some 30 kilometres (18 miles) south of the Turkish border. Turkish military released footage filmed on Wednesday (January 11) showing targets being bombed over the area. In a round-up of its military operations over the last 24 hours in support of rebels in northern Syria, the army said air strikes by Turkish fighter jets on 40 Islamic State targets destroyed shelters, command centres, weapons and vehicles. The Turkish military operation, dubbed 'Euphrates Shield', was launched more than four months ago to drive Islamic State militants away from the border region.
