Turkish Air Forces hit 11 of 12 targets with precise accuracy as part of anti-ISIL operations in Syria
World Bulletin / News Desk

The Turkish Armed Forces hit a total of 63 targets in northern Syria as part of anti-ISIL operations launched at 5.30 a.m. (0230 GMT) early Wednesday, military sources said.

According to the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, the Turkish Air Forces directly hit 11 of 12 targets with precise accuracy as of 7.50 a.m. local time (0450 GMT).

The sources said that the operation was aimed at clearing extremist groups from the Turkish border region, tightening border security, and supporting Syria’s territorial integrity.

The Turkish Air Forces carried out an operation "on identified targets" with F-16 fighter jets in Jarablus, Aleppo and the nearby village of Kaklijah, the sources added.

The operation is in line with the country’s right to self-defense borne out of international treaties and a mandate given to the Armed Forces by the Turkish parliament in 2014 and extended for another year in September 2015.

Operations by the Turkish Armed Forces, which have been actively fighting ISIL, have significantly contributed to ongoing efforts of the U.S.-backed international coalition against the extremist group.

Vermont ANG joins fight against ISIL

SOUTHWEST ASIA -- Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcons from the Vermont Air National Guard arrived here Dec. 10, to join the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.

Accompanying the aircraft were 300 ANG Airmen, deployed from the 158th Fighter Wing, who will comprise the 134th Expeditionary Fighter Squadron, which will fly strike missions against ISIL as part of the 407th Air Expeditionary Group.

“We are excited to generate, execute, and sustain decisive combat airpower through this expeditionary fighter squadron,” said. Col. David C. Lyons, 407th AEG commander. “The capability these total force Airmen provide through the use of precision airstrikes will aid in denying ISIL safe haven and provide ground forces in Iraq and Syria the opportunity to conduct localized counter attacks.”

The squadron will accompany Coalition partners flying in support of OIR at the deployed location. To date, about 60 regional and international nations have joined together to counter ISIL’s campaign in Iraq and Syria

“ISIL continues to pose a threat to the international community, but the Men and Women of the 407th AEG, together with our Joint and Coalition partners, are working hard to defeat and destroy Da’esh,” Lyons said.
