Turkish jets destroyed 17 ISIL targets Sunday near Al-Bab, northern Syria under its ongoing Operation Euphrates Shield, the Turkish military announced.

In air attacks starting in the early afternoon, Turkish jets hit 17 targets of the extremists, the Turkish Armed Forces said in a statement.

Targets were located in the towns of Qabasin and Suflaniyah northeast of the city of Al-Bab in northern Syria.

Turkey's Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in late August to rid the northern Syrian border area of extremists.

Under the operation, around 1,760 square kilometers (680 square miles) of land in northern Syria have been cleared of ISIL extremists.
