Turkish-led air and ground operations in Syria killed 48 ISIS militants while Turkish warplanes destroyed 23 buildings and shelters used by the extremists, the Daily Star quoted Turkey's armed forces as saying in a statement Monday.

Turkey launched the 'Euphrates Shield' operation in support of Syrian rebels more than four months ago to drive ISIS from the border and in recent weeks they have been besieging the ISIS-controlled town of al-Bab.
