NHK - Turkey strikes back after Syrian attack

NHK World News ---- Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai Description -- Turkey's military forces have fired on Syria after a mortar shell hit a Turkish border town, killing 5 residents. The shell from Syria landed in the Turkish town of Akcakale on Wednesday. Authorities say 5 people, including a woman and her 3 children were killed. 10 others were wounded. After the attack, Turkey released a statement, saying that its armed forces had fired on Syria in retaliation. In June, Syrian forces shot down a Turkish warplane. Since then, Turkey has warned of prompt action against Syria should its security be threatened again. The latest military duel has further raised tensions between the 2 countries. Turkey has provided support for the opposition Free Syrian Army. It has also been building up its military forces in the border area where it has deployed tanks.
