ISTANBUL - Shelling by Turkey's military and attacks by US-led coalition aircraft killed seven Islamic State militants in Syria, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported on Monday.

Turkish howitzers and rocket launchers opened fire over the border, while the air strikes hit an area near the Syrian town of Azaz, the agency said, citing security sources, but giving no detail on when the attacks took place.

The shelling and air strikes destroyed weapons systems that the militants were preparing to use to fire on Turkey, the agency said.
