An opposition commander with the Failaq al Sham group, who requested anonymity, told reporters that most of the Daesh fighters in Jarabulus had pulled out, some of them surrendering.

Another commander estimated up to 50 percent of the town was now under the control of the Turkish-backed opposition fighters.

"Daesh fighters have withdrawn from several villages on the outskirts of Jarabulus and are heading south towards the city of al Bab," the Failaq al Sham commander said.

News agencies reporting from the area stated that Daesh fighters offered relatively lower resistance against advancing FSA units.

No casualties have been reported from the Turkish Army, while one member of the FSA has been killed in the operations, reports said.

According to a press statement by the National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) reaffirmed full support for the operation to liberate Jarabulus from Daesh terrorists.

The statement also noted that the Syrian Coalition welcomes the support provided by Turkish forces and the international coalition against Daesh.
