The attack took place on Syria-Turkey border

The United States military landed a strike on ISIS positions in Syria, as the international coalition leads the war on terrorism in Turkey and Syria, reports.

'Last night: U.S. HIMARS in place and in action. The latest step in U.S.-Turkey cooperation inthe fight against ISIL', reads the tweet by U.S. Embassy.

The 'M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System' (HIMARS) is a U.S. light 'multiple rocket launcher' mounted on a standard Army Medium Tactical Vehicle (MTV) truck frame. It was developed in 1996-2000.

In April 2016, the U.S. deployed the HIMARS in Turkey near the border with Syria as part of the battle with ISIS.
