During heavy ISIS-rebel clashes in northern Aleppo in the past weeks, the Turkish Army has been aiding the armed Syrian Opposition against hostile fighters loyal to the Islamic State.

Earlier today, a Turkish Army official told reporters that Turkish artillery shells and armed Turkish drones were launched across the Syrian border and subsequently killed 34 ISIS militants in northern Aleppo.

Furthermore, the Turkish military source said six ISIS vehicles and five ISIS gun positions had been destroyed by the Turkish Army.

Meanwhile, coalition warplanes have also been heavily involved in clashes in northern Aleppo as the United States hopes to empower rebel fighters in the region.

Yesterday, Turkish howitzers and multiple rocket launchers were said to have struck Islamic State targets about 12 kilometers south of the border.

The incident is likely retaliation for ISIS destroying three Turkish tanks with anti-tank missiles fired from Islamic State positions in Syria.

Al-Masdar military sources were unable to confirm the death toll claimed by Turkish officials; however, the Turkish Army has indeed sporadically shelled ISIS fighters in recent months.

ISIS didn’t destroyed 3 turkish tanks : in their ideo, you see an APC and maybe some howitzer destroyed, the APC is shot 2 times… And this doesn’t even look like turkish army gear…
