Turkish military forces have shelled northern Syria, claiming to have targeted positions of the ISIS Takfiri terrorist group in the war-torn Arab country.

The Wednesday shelling, according to the Turkish army, came after ISIS elements fired rockets into the southern Turkish border town of Kilis for the third straight day.

The mayor of Kilis, Hasan Kara, told Reuters that there were no casualties in the town after multiple rockets landed in an empty field.

"We go to sleep to the sounds of rockets and we wake up to the sound of rockets," Kara said.

On Tuesday, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said 21 people had been injured this week in the shelling in Kilis.

Last month, two people, including a child, were killed by rocket fire into the Kilis.
