Turkish Military Fires into Syria After Mosque Shelled

The Turkish military fired back into Syria on Monday, in retaliation for mortar shells and a rocket from over the border that hit a mosque in the town of Yayladagi, Reuters reported.

The Turkish Dogan news agency reported that three mortar rounds landed on Turkish soil. They were fired during fighting between the Islamist rebels in Syria and forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad for control of the Armenian Christian village of Kasab.
