Syrian rockets strike Turkey, wounding five children

Turkey’s state-run news agency says three rockets fired from Syria have hit a Turkish border town, wounding five children between 8 years and 12 years of age.

The Anadolu Agency is citing military officials as saying that Turkish artillery immediately responded to the rockets fired on the town of Kilis on Monday by firing at targets across the border.

The report says one of rockets has struck the wall of a house, while the other two have landed on empty land. At least one of the wounded children is reported to be in serious condition.
