Two military aircrafts airdropped military aid to Turkish-backed militants fighting the Islamic State (IS) in northern Syria, Turkish General Staff announced.

The two aircrafts – most likely American – took off from an airbase in the gulf state of Qatar, which hosts Al Udeid Air Base used by the United States Central Command against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, as well as al-Qaeda in Yemen.

The aids were dropped to the US-vetted ‘moderate rebels’ in Tal Ahmar near the bordering town of Al-Rai, used by the US forces as a headquarter to assist rebels fighting under operation Euphrates Shield against ISIS terror group.
