Rockets fired from Syria fall in southern Turkey

Baku, March 19, AZERTAC

Rockets fired from across the border with Syria fell in Turkey's southern Kilis province, the country's National Defense Ministry said late Thursday, according to Anadolu Agency.

"Rockets determined to be fired from Syria fell on an empty field in Kilis. No citizens were injured and no damage or loss occurred in the incident," the ministry said on Twitter.

"A notification was sent to the RF [Russian Federation] side to stop the shooting, and the determined targets were immediately put under fire," the statement added.

The ministry also stressed that Turkish troops in the region "have been alerted” and developments are being followed.

Russian troops have been present in northern Syria under cease-fire deals with Turkey.
