ANKARA (AA) – Turkish military sources on Sunday said a total of 40 Daesh terrorists were killed in northern Syria during an operation by the Turkish Armed Forces and the U.S.-led coalition on Saturday.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to the media, Turkish security sources said artillery fire and air operations destroyed four Katyusha rocket launchers, two armored personnel carriers and two ammunition depots belonging to Daesh.
The sources did not specify the exact location of the operation.
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.
