Turkish military kills 55 ISIS fighters in Syria

The strike comes as displaced Syrian families returned home and schools reopened in rebel-held districts of Aleppo

Published: Updated:

The Turkish military killed 55 Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters in shelling north of the Syrian city of Aleppo on Saturday evening, military sources said.

The shelling also took out three vehicles and three rocket installations, the military sources said on Sunday.

The strike comes as displaced Syrian families returned home and schools reopened in rebel-held districts of Aleppo on Saturday after a truce was extended for 72 hours in the battleground northern city.

More than 300 civilians were killed in two weeks of fighting in the divided city before the truce took hold on Thursday, with regime air strikes on the opposition-held east and rebel shelling of its regime-controlled west.
