The Turkish Armed Forces hit 80 ISIL targets in northern Syria as part of Operation Euphrates Shield, the army said Wednesday.

Three opposition fighters were also martyred and four others injured during Tuesday's clashes.

ISIL seized control of some regions in the southern part of Akhtarin. Clashes between ISIL extremists and opposition fighters continue.

Operation Euphrates Shield was launched in late August to clear Syria's northern border area of extremists. Wednesday marks the 71st day of the operation.

In total, 33 mines and 1,379 improvised explosives have been defused since the start of the operation.
