BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – The Turkish General Staff claimed on Monday that their forces had killed at least 1,641 fighters from the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) and so-called Islamic State (ISIS).

The 1,641 ISIS and YPG fighters were reportedly killed by the Turkish Army and their rebel allies between the dates of January 20th and February 18th.

While the Turkish General Staff claims ISIS fighters were ‘neutralized’ during their Afrin operations, there has been no actual proof of the terrorist group being present in this region.

ISIS was previously active in northeast Aleppo; however, they were officially expelled from the province in early 2016.
