ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's state-run news agency says two rockets fired from Syria have landed in a Turkish border town, wounding at least two people.

Anadolu Agency says one of the rockets exploded near a park in Kilis on Thursday. The second rocket did not explode, the agency reported.

Several ambulances were sent to the area and two schools were evacuated.

Last month, two people, including a 4-year-old boy, were killed in Turkey by rockets fired from Islamic State-controlled territory across the border.

The Turkish military has been retaliating to any rockets or shells fired from Syria that land on Turkish territory in line with its rules of engagement.
