Turkey says Syrian fighters exposed to chemical gas

World Bulletin / News Desk

 In a statement Sunday, the Turkish General Staff said Syrian opposition fighters had been exposed to chemical gas during a ISIL missile attack.

The General Staff said 22 fighters -- who combat ISIL in alliance with Turkish forces within the scope of Operation Euphrates Shield -- were observed showing symptoms of chemical gas exposure in northern Syria’s Khalidiyah region.

The Turkish military also said a clash with ISIL terrorists had left one opposition fighter dead and 14 others injured.

Meanwhile, Turkish warplanes destroyed four ISIL targets in the Anifah neighborhood near al-Bab, also in Syria's north.

Operation Euphrates Shield was launched by Turkey in late August to rid the northern Syrian border area of terrorists.
