Injured Free Syrian Army fighters treated in Turkey

Eight Syrians injured during clashes in northern Syria were brought to Turkey's southern Kilis province for treatment on Thursday.

According to an Anadolu Agency correspondent in Kilis, three of the wounded people are Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighters who were wounded during clashes with Daesh nearby Al-Bab and Azez districts of Aleppo province.

The injured people received treatment at Kilis State Hospital, close to Turkey's border with northern Syria.

The Turkish-led Operation Euphrates Shield aims to provide security, support U.S.-led coalition forces and eliminate the terrorist presence along Syria's northern border with Turkey.

The operation, which began last summer, relies heavily on FSA fighters backed by Turkish artillery and air support.
