Turkey strikes at IS targets after rockets hit border town


Turkish artillery units on Tuesday shelled IS group targets across the border in Syria, officials said, hours after rockets fired from Syria struck a Turkish border town, wounding eight people.
Two rockets hit the town of Kilis early in the day in the third such cross-border incident at the town in the past five days. One rocket struck a guesthouse while the second landed on an empty field near a bus terminal, the state-run Anadolu Agency said. The Kilis governor’s office said eight people were hurt and two of them were in serious condition. Authorities evacuated children from a nearby youth center that has been turned into a temporary school for Syrian refugees, the report said.
