"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Five Dead in Rocket Fire on Turkey Town after Syrian Child Dies- Naharnet

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.
