The Turkish border town of Reyhanli has been hit with multiple missiles fired from northern Syria amid Turkey’s military operation, leaving one person dead and dozens injured. Another missile reportedly hit the town of Kilis.

At least one person was killed and 32 others wounded in Reyhanli, Mayor Hussein Sanverdi told Turkish media.

Speaking to the Turkish channel NTV, Sanverdi said: “One Syrian lost his life. We have 32 injuries. Two are seriously injured,” according to Hurriyet.


The governor of Hatay Province, where Reyhanli is located, said 37 people were injured in the missile attacks, T24 News reported. Of those, four are reportedly seriously wounded.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu condemned the attack on Twitter. “I condemn in the strongest terms the indiscriminate rocket fire by PYD/YPG terrorists that killed one Syrian refugee and wounded 32 Turkish citizens in Reyhanli. This attack on innocent people shows the real face of PYD terrorists.”
