Turkey’s military has fired numerous artillery rounds into Syria in immediate retaliation after a shell fired from Syria landed in the Turkish border town of Akcakale.
The Syrian shell landed in the grounds of a public building on Sunday and there were no casualties, Abdulhakim Ayhan, the mayor of Akcakale, told reporters.
“Thank God there were no victims. Turkish artillery immediately responded to the shots that came from Syria,” Ayhan said.
There was minor damage to the building, which had been previously evacuated, Turkish media said.
It was the second time that Turkey returned fire on Syrian army positions since Syrian shelling killed five civilians in Akcakale on Wednesday. (…)
