Two rockets fired from Islamic State-held territory in Syria hit a Turkish border town on Thursday, slightly wounding one person, a local mayor said.

The town of Kilis, which stands at the border in southern Turkey, has been repeatedly targeted by Islamic State rockets which have killed 19 people since the start of the year.

NATO member Turkey has routinely returned fire, destroying Islamic State gun positions and killing 370 militants, the state-run Anadolu Agency said this week.a
