Rockets from Syria fall on southern Turkey for third straight day

Three rocket fired from Syria landed Wednesday in Kilis province, southern Turkey, for the third straight day, the state run Anadolu news agency reported.

Two people were killed and at least 21 people have been injured this week by about a dozen rockets, which Turkey says were fired by Islamic State militants.

Residents of Kilis have taken to the streets to protest, complaining of a lack of security in their city, which lies close to the border, Cumhuriyet newspaper reported.

There have been fierce battles between Syrian rebels, including factions apparently backed by Turkey, and Islamic State over key territory along the border with Turkey. The territory in north Aleppo province has changed hands twice in the past week.

Moreover, in Aleppo city, rebels have been bombarding Kurdish positions, including residential areas. The factions are also fighting north-east of the city.
