According to reports from the ground, the death toll from a missile strike that occurred on Friday in the town of al-Bab located in the northwest corner of Syria has risen to 14.
The hit, which targeted a portion of the town with a significant civilian population, resulted in the deaths of several civilians, including children. At this point, there have been at least 37 more individuals hurt.
There has been no admission of guilt made up until this point. Al-Bab was one of several cities in northern Syria that Turkish forces cleansed of terrorists as part of Operation Euphrates Shield. The operation’s goal was to free the region of terrorists and make it possible for displaced Syrians to return to their homes in a safe and voluntary manner.
The operation began in August 2016, and by the time it was over in March 2017, more than 2,600 terrorists belonging to Daesh/ISIS had been killed, and an additional 413 terrorists had been eliminated.
