Two people have been killed after rockets hit the Turkish district of Karkamis, near the Syrian border, according to Turkish media reports and a regional governor.
Five rockets were reportedly fired on Monday, one of them hitting a school, leaving six people injured, two of them seriously.
Kurdish fighters are suspected of firing the rockets from northern Syria, after the Turkish air force conducted air attacks on positions held by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or the YPG, on Sunday.
Turkey accuses the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) of being behind a bombing in Istanbul that killed 6 people on November 13, and considers the YPG the PKK’s affiliate in Syria.
The PKK has denied any involvement in the Istanbul attack.
