ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish artillery has returned fire "in kind" into Syria, military sources said on Tuesday, marking the fourth straight day of shelling by the Turkish military.

Turkey on Monday warned Kurdish militia fighters in northern Syria they would face the "harshest reaction" if they tried to capture a town near the Turkish border, and accused Russia of a missile attack there that killed at least 14 civilians.
