Turkish military forces struck Da’esh (ISIS) targets across the southeastern border in Syria on Wednesday in retaliation for three days of rocket fire.
More than a dozen people were injured and at least two people were killed since Sunday in the attacks.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in a televised speech the Turkish army “struck back in line with its rules of engagement.”
The southern Turkish province of Kilis was struck Wednesday morning by Katyusha rocket fire from across the border in Syria. Four rockets struck two different areas in the region at about 9:10 am, landing in open fields. No casualties were reported, according to the Hurriyet Daily News.
One day earlier (April 12), two people were killed and six were wounded when two rockets landed in the same province, less than a day after a barrage from Syria had struck the area.
On April 11, three rockets were fired at Kilis from a Syrian region under the control of the Da’esh (ISIS) terrorist organization. Twelve people were reported wounded in that attack.
The rocket landed in an open field, according to the report. No one was injured and no damage was reported.Hana Levi Julian
