A mortar fire that struck a school in the south-central city of Kilis is believed to have originated from Syria.

The Mayor of Kilis, Hasan Kara, told A Haber TV that mortar shells from across the nearby border had hit parts of the town in the past, Hurriyet Daily News reports.

“We believe the mortar shells came from Syria. One of them hit the grounds of a school. Fortunately, others did not hit any buildings,” Kara said.

The border in question where Kilis is located with Syria is terrorist held.

The explosion hit the Eyup Gokce secondary school killing two people and injuring another four.

The Turkish newspaper Hurriyet reported from one of its editor that one of the dead was a school cleaner.

Reactions to the explosion were caught on camera.

are you nuts? These are turkmen jihadis firing at Turkey to provoke Turkish army response. They re losing the battles in this area to Syrian government and are trying to make it seem as if Syrian Army fired the shell.
