The Turkish military destroyed 224 ISIL targets and neutralized 23 extremists in northern Syria over the past 24 hours, military sources said on Friday, which marks the 150th day of the Euphrates Shield operation.

The Turkish-led operation, aided by the Free Syrian Army (FSA), was launched in late August to improve security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the extrem threat along Turkey's border.

The Euphrates Shield Operation cleared an area of 1,100 square kilometers within its first 50 days, and has since secured an area of 2,000 square kilometers.
