Turkish-backed ground forces and coalition airstrikes have killed 24 ISIL extremists in northern Syria, the military said Sunday.

In a statement, the Turkish General Staff said that 30 ISIL targets, including defensive positions and mortars, were destroyed around the villages of Shudud and Numan in airstrikes by coalition jets.

A Free Syrian Army fighter was killed and eight injured, the update on Operation Euphrates Shield added. The operation was launched in late August to clear Syria's northern border area of extremists.
