The Turkish army has fired back at targets in Syria for a third straight day. This comes after another Syrian mortar shell fell in a non-residential area in southern Turkish province of Hatay amid cross-border attacks.

The mortar shell fell in a village 50 meters away from the Syrian border. The Hatay Turkish governor said the Turkish army immediately "fired back at targets" within Syria, but did not cause any casualties.

Turkey started the military strikes on Syrian targets on Wednesday after mortar shells from the Syrian side killed five Turks in Akcakale, a border town in Turkey’s southeastern Sanliurfa province.

And then in an emergency session on Thursday, Turkish parliament approved a motion for cross-border military operations inside Syria.
