The camp in Kilis houses 11,500 Syrian refugees

Rockets fired from northern Syria have killed four Syrians, three of them children, in the Turkish border town of Kilis, local officials say.

The five Katyusha rockets came from part of Syria controlled by Islamic State (IS) militants, the Kilis governor’s office said.

Turkish artillery fired back at IS positions across the border, Turkey’s Hurriyet news daily reported.

Kilis has a Syrian refugee camp and shells have landed from Syria before.
