Turkish army hits IS targets in northern Syria

Turkish military hit Islamic States (IS) targets in response to mortar shell from northern Syria, Turkish media CNNturk reported on Tuesday.

Turkish army fired 40 shells at four IS targets in Syria after a mortal shell fired from the IS-controlled Jarablous in northern Syria landed in neighborhood of southeastern Turkish province of Gaziantep early Tuesday morning.

Turkish army howitzers stationed inside Turkey shelled IS targets in Syria's Jarablous and the Syrian wing of the Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK), the Democratic Union Party, in northern Manbij late Monday.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Cavusoglu said Monday that IS militants must be totally pushed from the Syrian border region, as reports suggest that Syrian rebels are preparing to launch an attack to seize a town from the jihadists on the border with Turkey.
