Turkey's state-run news agency says airstrikes and Turkish artillery fire against the Islamic State group in Syria have killed 14 militants.

Turkey is part of the U.S.-led coalition targeting IS in an airstrikes campaign.

The Anadolu Agency, citing military officials, said Wednesday the strikes targeted IS positions north of the city of Aleppo and destroyed a tank, two mortar positions, a building used as headquarters and three vehicles.

The report says the strikes came after Turkey's military had determined that IS militants were preparing to attack the Turkish territory from the region.

The report could not be independently verified. Turkey has not explained how it counts casualties in Syria.

Cross-border fire from Syria has claimed 21 lives and wounded dozens of others in the border town of Kilis this year.
