The attacks followed airstrikes into northern Syria, where Turkish fighter jets targetted Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) bases.
Private broadcaster NTV said that Turkish warplanes, which all took off from their base in the southeastern city of Diyarbakır, had also set off on a separate but simultaneous mission for a second wave of attacks against ISIL late July 25, after a first set of attacks earlier in the day.
