ANKARA, Turkey – A Turkish news agency says rocket projectiles fired from Syria have hit a mosque at a border town, wounding several people.
The private Dogan news agency said the projectiles struck the mosque in Kilis, a town just a few kilometers from the Syrian border, on Sunday. It said the mosque is close to the office of the region's governor.
Officials say more than a dozen people, including children, have been killed since January from rocket rounds fired at Kilis, mainly from Islamic State-controlled territory across the border.
The Turkish military systematically responds by firing back at targets in Syria, in line with its rules of engagement.
The agency said some Kilis residents took to the streets in protest of the attacks and to demand greater protection.
