Army: Turkish artillery kills Daesh terrorists in Syria
Terrorists were killed while preparing to fire rockets into Turkey, military says
Turkish military sources have said their forces killed a total of 104 Daesh terrorists in Syria on Friday.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media, Turkish military sources said Saturday that their artillery killed the terrorists who were on the verge of firing rockets towards nearby Turkey.
During the operations, seven defensive positions and four mortars belonging to Daesh were destroyed.
Since mid-January, Daesh rockets have been targeting towns and cities in southern Turkey, close to the Syrian frontier. A total of 21 people, including Syrians sheltering in Turkey, have been killed and more than 70 others wounded.
