Militants fired rockets at the construction site on Thursday in Somali capital city of Mogadishu, hitting a container, which houses Turkish workers. The rockets caused a fire in the container, wounding at least two workers.

The wounded workers were taken to Kimse Yok Mu Association's Deva Education and Research Hospital.

Turkey also dispatched an ambulance plane to Mogadishu to transfer the wounded workers to Turkey.
