Turkish Artillery Fires on Syria

Turkish officials confirmed on Wednesday that their artillery had fired on Syrian targets after Syrian forces shelled a Turkish town earlier on Wednesday. NATO called for an urgent meeting, and urged Syria to immediately cease all aggression against Turkey, a key NATO ally. A statement by Turkish officials said the artillery fired "on points in Syria that were detected with radar, in line with the rules of engagement." At least three people in Turkey were killed, including a 6-year-old boy, when a shell fired from Syria landed on a home earlier on Wednesday.
