ISTANBUL – The Turkish military says its forces have hit Islamic State positions in Syria, killing 34 militants.
The state-owned Anadolu Agency said Monday the strikes took out multiple rocket launchers and gun positions.
The AP was unable to verify the report. The army typically responds to fire from Syria in line with its rules of engagement. On Sunday, four rockets fired from Syria wounded eight people in the Turkish border town of Kilis, where the Syrian conflict regularly spills over.
In the past year, Turkey has also witnessed suicide bombings linked to the IS as well as attacks linked to Kurdish militants.
The latest came Sunday, when a car bomb detonated outside a police station in the southern city of Gaziantep. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for that attack.
