More rockets hit a Turkish town on the Syrian border on Tuesday, wounding at least three people, a day after five were killed by fire from an area of Syria controlled by jihadists, a Turkish government official said.
In the last few weeks, Islamic State (IS) jihadists have repeatedly fired rockets at Kilis, the only town in Turkey where refugees from Syria's five-year conflict now outnumber local Turks.
"Three rockets slammed into three different spots in the center of Kilis, one in an empty field, one near a school and another near a mosque," the official told AFP on condition of anonymity.
The official said the rocket fire left three people lightly injured while the strikes caused a fire to break out one of the houses.
Four Syrian children are now confirmed to have been killed in the strikes by Katyusha-type rockets Monday on Kilis, along with a Syrian shepherd, the CNN-Turk and NTV channels reported.
The death toll from Monday's rocket strikes rose to five on Tuesday after another Syrian child died in hospital, reports said.
