ANKARA (AA) – At least eight Daesh terrorists have been killed on Saturday in northern Syria during an operation by the Turkish Armed Forces and the U.S.-led coalition, security sources said.

According to Turkish security sources speaking on the condition of anonymity Sunday, the Turkish army howitzers -- known as Firtina ('Storm' in Turkish) -- hit 11 targets, which were reportedly in preparation of attacking Turkey.

The targets consisted of weapon pits, Katyusha rocket launchers and mortars, the sources said.

The coalition forces conducted three airstrikes on Daesh positions in Syria, the sources added.

Turkey’s southeastern province of Kilis has faced a spate of cross-border rocket attacks from Daesh in recent months.
