ANKARA (Reuters) - Two rockets hit the Turkish town of Kilis near the Syrian border on Monday, killing one person and wounding others, a security source told Reuters.

The Turkish military returned fire into Syria, hitting Islamic State targets, the source said. Kilis, just across the border from a region of northern Syria controlled by the militant group, has been frequently hit by rocket fire in recent weeks.
