TEHRAN, Nov. 27 (MNA) – News sources reported on Saturday night that the base of Turkish forces in northern Syria was targeted by artillery attacks.

According to the reports, Kurdish militias and Syrian army forces targeted the Turkish military base in the village of Dabiq on the northern outskirts of Aleppo with artillery shells.
