Turkish National Defense Ministry on Thursday (March 5) said it neutralized scores of Assad regime militiamen, military vehicles, and weapons in the past 24 hours as part of its recent military operation in northern Syria.  

In an official statement, the ministry said Turkey’s military operation successfully continued with aerial and ground assistance. 

“4 tanks, 5 cannons/MLRSs [Multi Launch Rocket System], 3 anti-tank weapons, 8 military vehicles, 2 machine gun vehicles, 2 armored vehicles were destroyed in the past 24 hours,” said the statement. 

It added: “184 regime troops were neutralized as well.” 

On Feb 27, Turkey launched Operation Spring Shield in northwestern Syria after at least 34 Turkish soldiers were killed in an Assad regime airstrike in Idlib late February.

"Since the start of Operation Spring Shield, Turkey destroyed 3,138 regime militiamen, 151 tanks, 100 artillery units, three warplanes, eight helicopters, eight air defense systems, 10 ammunition dumps, 60 armored vehicles and 47 howitzers," Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.
