DIYARBAKIR, Turkey (Reuters) - Turkey’s military returned fire into an Islamic State-controlled region of Syria after rockets hit the Turkish border town of Kilis on Tuesday, security sources said.

Kilis, just across the border from an area of northern Syria controlled by the militants, has been regularly hit by rocket fire. One person was wounded in Tuesday’s attack on the town, the security sources said.
