One killed in Turkey by rocket fire from Syria: Report

AFP , Monday 18 Apr 2016

Four rockets fired from Syria slammed into the southern Turkish town of Kilis on Monday, killing one Syrian national and wounding a child, the Dogan news agency reported.

Kilis has in the last week repeatedly been hit by deadly strikes from rockets fired from the Syrian side of the border, with local officials saying they were launched from an area controlled by Islamic State jihadists.

There were no immediate details on the origin of the latest fire on the town of Kilis, where refugees from the war in Syria now outnumber Turkish locals.
