ISTANBUL - Rockets fired from Syria hit the Turkish town of Kilis on Wednesday, the local mayor told Reuters, prompting Turkey's army to retaliate and hit targets across the border.

There were no casualties in Kilis after multiple rockets landed in an empty field, Mayor Hasan Kara told Reuters. Security sources said the Turkish military fired howitzers into Syria in response.

Wednesday's shelling marks the third straight day that Kilis has been hit by rocket fire. The town is just across the border from an Islamic State-controlled area of Syria.
