Approximately 2,800 improvised explosive devices have been destroyed since last August, when Turkey launched its Euphrates Shield Operation against IS and the Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units, the military wing of the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party, which Turkey regards as a terrorist organization.
