Turkey: 45 ISIS militants killed in joint US-Turkish operation in Syrian Aleppo

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Turkish artillery and coalition airstrikes in the troubled Syrian city of Aleppo killed at least 45 militants of the Islamic State (ISIS) Turkey’s official Anadolu Agency reported.

"During the operations, five defensive positions and a mortar belonging to Daesh were destroyed," the agency added, referring to ISIS by another Arabic name.

Last week Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country would “clean” up the Syrian side of the border with Turkey by going after ISIS militants.

Following his call, the Turkish army claimed Thursday it killed 28 ISIS militants in a series of airstrikes in two separate operations against the group's positions in Syrian territory, close to the Turkish border areas.

Erdogan’s call followed volleys of ISIS mortars and rockets landing in the Turkish town of Kilis on the Syrian border in recent weeks, in what appeared to be a sustained attack.

"We are doing all the necessary preparations to clean the other side of the border because of the problems in Kilis," the Daily Star quoted Erdogan as saying.

Turkey, a member of the US-led coalition battling ISIS, also allows US jets to use its air base in southern Turkey for air strikes on the extremists.
