Turkish Armed forces bomb Syria with 'Storm' artillery shells, according to daily Milliyet.

According to information obtained from military sources in Ankara, the Turkish authorities decided on three possible options after yesterday's attack that caused the death of five Turkish civilians.

The authorities said that if the attack had been conducted with mortar shells it could may have been done either by forces from the al-Assad regime, the Free Syrian Army rebels, or by terrorists. 

However, as it was revealed that the attack was conducted using a bomb, Turkish forces bombed Syrian army targets in return.
