Turkish troops in northern Iraq came under attack from Daish terrorists on Sunday, a security official in the area said.
There were no injuries in the attack at Gedu base, near Daish-held Mosul, the Turkish official said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media.
Troops responded, destroying a Daish gun emplacement seized from the Iraqi army. A drone operated by the terrorists was also downed by Stinger missile.
Turkish forces in northern Iraq are largely based at Bashiqa, a training camp around 12 kilometers (7 miles) northeast of Mosul. An offensive to take back the city is expected by the end of the year.
