Turkey: 18 ISIS militants killed in strikes in northern Syria

ANKARA – US-led coalition airstrikes and Turkish artillery fire against Islamic State group targets in Syria have killed 18 militants, Turkey’s state-run news agency reported on Thursday.

Anadolu Agency, quoting unnamed security officials, said that the ISIS targets were attacked after Turkish authorities on Wednesday determined that the extremist group was preparing to strike Turkey from northern Syria. It said Turkish and coalition strikes also destroyed two gun-mounted vehicles, various mortar and artillery positions as well as a building used as a defense shelter. The report could not be independently verified.
