Turkey retaliates after shells fired from Syria: state TV

ISTANBUL: Turkey's military fired back into Syria on Friday after two shells launched from Syria landed in Turkish territory, Turkish state broadcaster TRT reported, without specifying where the incident occurred.

Turkey has carried out a series of retaliatory strikes against President Bashar al-Assad's forces, fighting rebels in border regions, since Syrian shelling killed five Turkish civilians in a Turkish border town at the start of October.
