Mortar shells fired by Daesh terrorists in Syria hit military post in Oğuzeli district of southeastern Gaziantep province, leaving one soldier lightly injured.

Terrorists in Syria's Aleppo province fired two mortal shells and artillery and the Turkish military returned fire under the rules of engagement, security sources have said.

On April 2, Turkish artillery units started targeting Daesh terror organization's positions in the district of Azaz in northern Syria.

The positions located in the villages of Cekke, Dabij and Mregel, which were targeted by anti-Daesh coalition's airstrikes on Friday, came under artillery fire on Saturday.

Reports from the region stated that artillery explosions still continue, while security measures on the border were increased to the top level.

Turkey has detained nearly 700 suspected Daesh members in nationwide counterterrorism operations since the beginning of 2016.
