A total of 14 Daesh terrorists were killed in northern Syria during an operation by Turkish Armed Forces and the U.S.-led coalition on Tuesday, the Turkish military said Wednesday.

According to a Turkish General Staff statement, artillery fire and air operations destroyed one tank, two mortar vehicles, and three armored personnel carriers in northern Aleppo.

Turkish towns and provinces have been repeatedly struck by fire from across the border since mid-January. The center of Kilis lies 6 kilometers from the Syrian border, and the town has been repeatedly struck by cross-border rocket fire.

On May 2, Turkish forces struck Daesh gun emplacements and ammunition dumps in the Suran, Arshak, Ikdakh and Ihtimalat regions on the Syrian side of the border, initially killing "50 terrorists." This figure later increased after military operations.
