Rocket fired from Syria by YPG hits Turkey’s Kilis

A rocket fired by the People’s Protection Units (YPG) from Syria hit Turkey’s border province of Kilis on Feb. 1.

The rocket, which landed on the city center, hit the outer wall of a building in the Ekrem Çetin neighborhood, according to a state-run Anadolu Agency correspondent on the ground.

Mehmet Baloğlu, the owner of the house, said he sensed the rocket strike while he was sleeping, but he didn’t know it hit his house.

Later, another rocket struck an office in the Barış neighborhood of Kilis.

No casualties were reported in the attacks.

Separately, a rocket was disposed under enhanced security measures in the southern border province of Hatay.

It was among three rockets fired by the YPG that landed on a yard in the Reyhanlı district, but did not explode.

Since Jan. 31, seven rockets fired by the group struck scores of houses in Reyhanlı. Fatma Avlar, a teenage girl, was killed in the attacks from the YPG on Jan. 31.
