Earlier in the day, the NTV channel reported that at least two people had been injured in southern Turkey’s Reyhanli as a result of rocket fire from Syria. According to the channel, those injured were taken to a hospital, with no information on their condition available.
The Anadolu Agency later reported that an injured teenage girl had died in hospital from wounds sustained in one of the attacks, carried out by the Kurdish Democratic Union Party’s (PYD) militants. One more civilian was reportedly injured, two houses and several cars were also damaged.
Since the start of the Turkish operation in Syria's Afrin, the town of Reyhanli and the city of Kilis in Hatay province have been hit by a number of shelling and rocket attacks reportedly coming from Kurdish-held territories in Syria, with at least several people killed and dozens injured.
Damascus has firmly condemned the operation as an assault on Syria's sovereignty. Moscow, in turn, has urged all the parties to exercise restraint and called for respect for Syria's territorial integrity.
