Addis Ababa, October 10, 2019 (FBC) – Turkish forces have killed over 100 militants in an assault on Kurdish militia in northeast Syria, Turkey’s president said on Thursday, as heavy shelling and air strikes against targets in the region continued.

According to a senior Turkish security official, armed forces struck weapons and ammunition depots, gun and sniper positions, tunnels and military bases.

Jets conducted operations up to 30 km into Syria, and a Reuters witness saw shells exploding just outside the town of Tel Abyad.
