Ankara - 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 US-led coalition targeting ISIS in an airstrikes campaign.

The Anadolu Agency, citing military officials, said on Wednesday the strikes targeted ISIS 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 ISIS militants were preparing to attack the Turkish territory from the region.

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