Videos have been posted on Twitter, shot by unmanned aerial vehicles showing what is reported to be massive strikes by Turkish air forces on enemy convoys, military hardware, and personnel in Syria's Idlib "de-escalation zone".
The move is seen as retaliation for the latest deadly air raid by Assad forces that killed at least 33 Turkish soldiers in the area.
Also, Turkey bombed enemy headquarters and ammunition depots.
