Around 30 Daesh militants were killed in a coalition airstrike in the early hours of Monday in Syria, near Turkey's southern Kilis province.

According to local security sources, speaking anonymously since they are not authorized to talk with the media, the air attack also annihilated three Katyusha rocket launchers belonging to the terrorist group.

Kilis lies six kilometers (four miles) from the Syrian border and in recent months has been repeatedly hit by rockets fired from Daesh-controlled territory in Syria.

Eight people in the province have been killed by cross-border rockets in the last week.
