Turkish armed forces are shelling the positions of the "Islamic State" (IS, aka ISIS, ISIL or Daesh) terrorist group in Syria, Turkey's newspaper Hurriyet said Apr. 21.
The shelling of the IS positions in Syria began at 10:00 (GMT+3 hours) on Apr. 21.
The shelling will continue until the complete destruction of the IS supporting points in areas in the north of Syria, bordering the Turkish provinces of Kilis and Hatay.
Turkey's south-eastern province of Kilis came under fire last week from Syrian territory, which is controlled by the IS. Five people died as a result of the shelling.
