Turkey Shelling Kills 28 IS Fighters Near Aleppo

At least 28 Islamic State militants have reportedly been killed, following shelling by Turkish forces, near the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.

Turkey’s military killed at least 28 Islamic State fighters in shelling north of the Syrian city of Aleppo on Sunday in retaliation for the latest attacks against a Turkish border town, broadcaster CNN Turk said, citing a military statement.

The attack hit 58 Islamic State targets with artillery and rocket launchers, CNN Turk said on Monday.

The pro-government Sabah newspaper reported five people were injured on Friday when rockets fired from Islamic State-controlled territory in northern Syria hit the Turkish border province of Kilis, which is about 60 kilometers (37 miles) north of Aleppo.
