Rockets from Syria injure 5 children in SE Turkey
Five children between the ages of 5 and 11 were injured when three rockets fired from Daesh-controlled territory in Syria landed in the Turkish province of Kilis on Monday, Anadolu reported.
One of the rockets hit the wall of a residential building in a central neighborhood of the Kilis province, while the other two landed in empty fields in other residential areas, the statement said, adding the rockets were fired at 6.25 p.m. local time.
The wounded children have been hospitalized, the eldest being in critical condition, a hospital source said on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
The initial reports had indicated there were four wounded.
The Turkish military said it located the positions from where the rockets were fired, and retaliated, destroying eight targets.
The border province has been hit by more than 80 rockets since January, resulting in 21 deaths.
