Turkish army howitzers have destroyed six Daesh targets in northern Syria, military sources said Sunday.
Speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak with the media, the sources said the Daesh targets had been preparing to launch rockets to Turkey.
The sources added that a total of eight terrorists were "neutralized" and that Katyusha rockets and mortar shells were among the six targets, and were covered with fire from an air operation by anti-Daesh coalition forces as well.
Turkey has seen frequent rocket attacks from neighboring Syria since mid-January. In the Kilis province alone, a total of 20 people have been killed and almost 70 others wounded by rockets which fell inside Turkish territory.
