Turkish soldier killed in cross-border fire from ISIS territory in Syria

The incident took place in the southeastern province of Kilis, abutting territory controlled by the militants for months.
Turkey in July stepped up its involvement in the fight against the group, launching air strikes and opening its air bases to the US-led coalition.
