Two rocket projectiles fired from the Bab region of northern Syria under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) hit the border province of Kilis on April 29, adding to the latest rocket strikes by the jihadist group in the region.

Two Katyusha rockets exploded in quick succession in a field near the Öncüpınar Kilis motorway at around 6 a.m. creating a crater. No injuries were reported in the incident.

A number of security and health personnel were deployed to the scene following the incident.

Teams made investigations in the field as security measures were taken in the area.

Kilis has experienced intense shelling from ISIL-controlled regions in northern Syria in recent months.

Recently, two Katyushas fired from Syria hit a mosque just 100 meters from the Kilis Governor’s Office, killing two people.

Eighteen people have been killed in rocket attacks since Jan. 18 in Kilis.
