Turkish forces have killed at least 13 Daesh terrorists in northern Syria, a security source said Tuesday.

The strikes by artillery and armed aerial drones followed rocket attacks launched from Daesh-controlled territory in Syria on Turkey’s southern Kilis province Tuesday.

According to the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media, the Turkish military shelled with howitzers and rockets, destroying four vehicles carrying heavy Soviet DShK machine guns, as well as three gun emplacements.

Kilis, a province just 6 kilometers (4 miles) from the Syrian border, has been subjected to repeated rocket attacks since January, resulting in 20 deaths.
